Hello Sydney Times Reader !

As we reach 70% vaccination rate it’s time for NSW to get back to business.

The 3 stages for NSW to move out of stay at home orders have been announced:

70% full vaccination target reopening starts for fully vaccinated people – expected to be Monday 11 October.

80% full vaccination target further easing of restrictions for fully vaccinated people – expected to be Monday 25 October.

Wednesday 1 December further easing of restrictions for everyone whether vaccinated or not.

When we reach 70% full vaccination make sure you know how to reopen your business safely, and follow all safety guidelines for your industry including:

  • COVID-Safe check-ins and proof of vaccination will be required for staff and customers
  • Physical distancing and density limit of 1 person per 4 square metres for indoor areas
  • Employers must continue to allow employees to work from home (where possible)
  • Masks for staff and customers indoors, and for hospitality staff outdoors
  • Ensure your employees are informed of your safety plan; if they feel unwell they must stay home, get tested and isolate – even if they are vaccinated.
