NSW’s freedoms at 80 per cent to be revealed today by Premier Gladys Berejiklian at 11am

The NSW government will this morning reveal its reopening road map for when the state reaches 80 per cent double dose vaccination coverage.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro says the plan will include details about what freedoms vaccinated and unvaccinated people will be able to enjoy.

He was asked about reports the government is considering a freedom date for people who choose not to be vaccinated.

“I can promise you this, that under the 70 per cent road map, unvaccinated people will have very little changes to their freedoms to what they have today,” the Deputy Premier told radio station 2GB.

“It doesn’t mean we’re going to open up soon after that to unvaccinated people.”

He said the full detail of the state’s plan for when it reaches 80 per cent coverage of people aged 16 and older would be revealed by Premier Gladys Berejiklian at 11am today.

There would be a “stark difference” between what vaccinated and unvaccinated people can do, Mr Barilaro said.

“I think you’ll be surprised at what will be announced. If you want the freedoms we are talking about right across the board you’re going to have to be vaccinated.”

NSW is on track to reach the 70 per cent vaccination coverage next week, paving the way for businesses to reopen on October 11.
