Vaccinated and unvaccinated people in NSW are facing new COVID-19 limitations

Vaccinated and unvaccinated people in NSW are facing new COVID-19 limitations

More COVID- Nineteen restrictions in NSW are going to be eased today. Unvaccinated people are also getting a lot of new freedoms for the first time since June.

This week, it's been about 21 months since New South Wales was put into lockdown because COVID-19 had spread across the world.

The state was forced to stay at home again at the end of June this year because of a Delta outbreak.

Many of the freedoms that had been taken away in March last year have now been restored thanks to high vaccination rates. Despite the rise of COVID-19 and the Omicron strain, the most populous state in Australia has been able to do things that were not possible before.

Here's what's going on today.

Today, what has changed?

People in NSW will see a lot of changes today, even if they haven't been vaccinated.

From now on, there is no limit on how many people you can have in your home, at public events, and at places where people can be served.

Masks are still a good idea in places where social distance isn't possible, but they aren't required in most indoor places, like shops.

People who have had trouble making appointments for personal services like hairdressers and beauty salons will also be happy to hear that there are now more places to make appointments.

Businesses like these will be able to grow as big as they want from now on.

An exercise or dance class can now have more than 20 people. There are no density limits for gyms and indoor recreation and sports facilities.

Community sports events with more than 1,000 people will no longer need a COVID-19 safety plan.

Carpooling for people who haven't been vaccinated is now allowed for people who live in Greater Sydney or in other parts of New South Wales.

What restrictions are still in place?

On public transportation, planes, and airports, people who haven't been fully vaccinated will still need to wear face masks.

A QR code will still be required for check-ins at hospitals and other places where people get sick or have disabilities. This includes places of worship and other places where people get married or have a funeral or memorial services, as well as places where people get sex and places where people get drunk and have strip clubs.

If you go to an indoor music festival with more than 1,000 people and you go on a cruise with more than 100 people, you'll need to show that you've had a vaccine.

They will still need to stay in quarantine for 14 days if they are not fully vaccinated when they arrive in a new country.

International travel restrictions that were put in place because of the Omicron COVID-19 variant will also apply.

Before coming to Australia, anyone who has been to South Africa or any of the other countries on this list must stay in a hotel for 14 days, no matter how many times they have been vaccinated. This is even if they haven't been vaccinated.

What has changed for the people who haven't been vaccinated?

They have been living under strict COVID rules since October, while the rest of the state has had more freedom.

Unvaccinated people will now be able to do the same things as people who have been vaccinated.

The unvaccinated were supposed to get more freedoms on December 1, but the NSW government last month put them in "lockdown."

He told people who haven't been vaccinated to stop being "selfish" and get the shot.

There are a lot of people in New South Wales who have been vaccinated.

Around New South Wales, 94.8 percent of people who are 16 and older have had the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 93.2 percent have been fully vaccinated.

In 12 days, NSW went from 70% fully vaccinated to 81% fully vaccinated. It took 23 days to go from 80% to 90% fully vaccinated.

While, on the other hand, it took 30 days for the population to go from 90% to 93% fully vaccinated, which is a big difference.
