After more than 100 days of restrictions, NSW tomorrow will take its first steps back towards normal life.
Businesses will open to customers on Monday, October 11, with patrons required to demonstrate they have been double-vaccinated and are willing to comply with physical-distancing requirements.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said tomorrow is the first step in seeing some restrictions lift for those who are double-vaccinated, and for businesses around the state to re-open and get the NSW economy back to business.
“There is a sense of optimism out there with thousands of businesses across the State busy preparing to open their doors tomorrow. NSW you’ve earned this.” Mr Perrottet said.
“As we re-open after more than 100 days we ask everyone to treat staff with kindness and respect when they ask you to check-in or see your vaccination certificate.
“Following these simple measures will help keep us all safe and keep us moving forward out of the pandemic.”
People are being advised to book ahead, check-in with your QR code, show proof of vaccination, be respectful to staff, and look after each other.
