Sumary of Gladys’s plan to end Sydney lockdown:
- The NSW Premier has hinted ‘adjustments’ may be made when lockdown ends, but any changes remain under wraps as case numbers soar.
- Any “adjustments” to restrictions may be outlined on July 31 when Sydney’s lockdown is due to end, but as case numbers continue to soar there are concerns it will be extended.
- NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the “real key” to freedom was having a high percentage of residents fully vaccinated, and she hoped to outline the steps out of lockdown late next week.
- Ms Berejiklian was asked about lifting tough lockdown measures for the construction industry and allowing children to return to school as an initial step.
- Dr Sanjaya Senanayake told Sunrise that the stricter lockdown measures, such as the closure of non-essential retail brought in last weekend, could be reflected in the numbers from the end of the week.
- “One thing that’s important to remember is the new restrictions were brought in on Sunday,” Dr Senanayake said.
