Soz but it’s four more weeks for Sydney

And it’s not just Sydney in lockdown, it’s also those in the surrounding regions of the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Shellharbour and Wollongong who will spend the better part of August in lockdown. The deets are expected when Premier Gladys Berejiklian delivers her update this morning, but further restrictions on movement, time outdoors, or putting up a Melbourne-style ‘ring of steel’ aren’t expected. It comes after the state’s highest daily figures of the outbreak were recorded yesterday with 172 new local cases – 79 were out and about during their infectious period. That’s not “where we want them to be,” Berejiklian said. Feeling a different vibe are those in Victoria, South Oz and parts of the NSW Central West as they taste freedom this morning, but it won’t be BAU. All have restrictions in place for now.
