New South Wales Reveals What Life Will Look Like At 80% Double Jabbed

The New South Wales Government has today revealed its re-opening roadmap for when the state hits 80 per cent double dose vaccination coverage.

Prior to the announcement Deputy Premier John, Barilaro said the plan would be very different for those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated.

The state is expected to hit 70% double vaccinated on October 11 and 80% a week later.

Under the plans at 80% fully vaccinated people will be able to travel freely across New South Wales.

Community sport will also restart.

The third stage of re-opening will be on December 9, when the indoor spacing requirements will be halved to 2sqm, rather than 4sqm.

The final stage will unvaccinated people resume normal life, which will not happen prior to December 1, a full 5 weeks after the 80% target is hit.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said '' I don’t want to be the party pooper but I’ve said let’s not think about this as a freedom day but let’s think about this as a stained reopening to getting back to normal but there is no doubt that for those of us who are fully vaccinated at the 70% double dose life will feel so much better.''
