NSW LIFTS CURFEW IN LGAs OF CONCERN
Curfews in Sydney’s Local Government Areas (LGAs) of concern have now been lifted, as the state hits the milestone of 80 per cent of the adult population with one dose of the COVID vaccine.
Curfews have been lifted in the LGAs of concern:
- Georges River
- Penrith for the following suburbs: Caddens, Claremont Meadows, Colyton, Erskine Park, Kemps Creek, Kingswood, Mount Vernon, North St Marys, Orchard Hills, Oxley Park, St Clair and St Marys.
This is a whole-of-government decision based on the advice of our health and police experts.
While the NSW community has achieved this fantastic milestone, it is critical that we do not let our guard down.
We continue to ask the community to follow the stay-at-home rules, limit their movement and do all they can to keep everyone safe.
NSW Health continues to urge everyone in these LGAs, and throughout NSW, to get vaccinated, get tested immediately if they have even the mildest of symptoms and isolate until they receive a negative result.
High rates of testing are critical to detecting transmission and preventing further spread of COVID-19 in the community.
