The New South Wales government will ban unvaccinated people from entering venues and businesses across the state, Gladys Berejiklian He says.
Berejiklian also announced that the curfew for high-risk LGAs in Sydney will then be lifted New South Wales 80% have passed a single marked dose, she said, and the public health order will prevent places from serving non-vaccinated recipients.
“at 70%” [two doses], if you are not vaccinated, it will be sanitary and legal that if you are not vaccinated, you will not be able to attend places on the roadmap,” she said. “You cannot go to a hospitality place. You can only go to ticketed events if you have been vaccinated.”
“The government will need to seek legal advice ourselves. This is uncharted territory but we offer as much certainty as possible, as far as we know there is a 70% double dose.”
It comes after Canterbury Mayor Bankstown, Khal Asfour, said the meeting between mayors from 12 local bodies of concern and Berejiklian became “hot” when he requested corporate resources to block entry for unvaccinated clients.
The announcement comes as the state reports 1,259 new locally acquired cases, and 12 deaths, making Tuesday the deadliest day in the delta outbreak yet.
It is the first time that the Prime Minister has confirmed her intentions to make the attendance of unvaccinated people explicitly illegal, and the first time she has indicated that regulating the work of her sponsors will be a corporate responsibility.
“We are going through compliance issues now, so there is an onus on you as an individual to vaccinate and it will depend on the scale of the business,” Berejiklian said.
“We get advice from a myriad of sources every step of the way and what people choose to do individually relates to them regarding legal issues, but I will say this – our job is to provide certainty and security to the community but also to see both patrons enjoy their freedom.”
It comes as the state government announced that it has lifted the curfew for 12 local government areas of interest, with the single-dose vaccination rate reaching 80%.
Berejiklian welcomed the vaccination sign, saying that lifting the curfew was a decision by “the whole government,” but he refused to ease any further restrictions.
She said, “We can’t move on anything else now, we’ve seen stability in the past few days and we don’t want to see this trend go in the wrong direction. We still have work to do.”
It was a combination of the vaccine’s high first-dose rates and the need to provide mental health relief that prompted the change, Berejiklian said.
Pressing health advice to prevent any further easing of restrictions, such as easing restrictions on outdoor exercise, Dr Kerry Chant, NSW Chief Health Officer, said communities in those 12 LGA of concern needed to “reduce the number of cases”.
“We keep everything under review but the main message I would like the communities in the Southwest is Sydney And western Sydney to get away with that is you’ve done 0 well.”
“It had really high vaccination rates, [we] Need to increase vaccination coverage with the second dose and increase the first dose. Thank you for your patience but we are not out of the woods yet.”
The curfew, which prevented people from leaving their homes for non-essential reasons between 9pm and 5am, has been in effect since August 23.
It has been applied to 12 LGAs, including Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield and some suburbs of Penrith.
The state has hit 47.5% of the double-dose vaccination among its eligible population, with the prime minister saying it will only take “a few weeks” before the state reaches the 70% threshold needed to ease further restrictions.
Chant was also asked if Young would be locked down, after NSW Health identified a positive case who had visited the city. She said that option was something authorities were considering.
“We saw discoveries of sewage in Young and found a case for another locality when the case was interviewed, that person was actually a number of other places.”
“There are a number of places and other urgent tests are being done.”
