Dear Readers

Last week we emailed you about the roadmap to reopening NSW and what it means for you at 70%, 80% and from 1 December.

Changes to the roadmap this week mean if you’re fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption, you can do even more from Monday 11 October.

The 3 stages of reopening NSW are:

70% full vaccination target reopening starts for people who are fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption – from Monday 11 October.

80% full vaccination target further easing of restrictions for people who are fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption.

Wednesday 1 December opening up NSW for everyone.

Clearer travel rules

From Monday 11 October, travel restrictions will start to ease, but travel for holidays and recreation visits including day trips between Greater Sydney and Regional NSW are not permitted until we reach the 80% full vaccination target.

If you’re fully vaccinated and live in Greater Sydney (including the Central Coast, Wollongong, Shellharbour and the Blue Mountains) you:

  • can travel anywhere within Greater Sydney
  • cannot travel to regional NSW for holidays or recreation.

If you’re fully vaccinated and live in regional NSW you:

  • can travel anywhere in regional and rural NSW
  • cannot travel to Greater Sydney (including the Central Coast, Wollongong, Shellharbour and the Blue Mountains) for holidays or recreation.
