Back to business celebration

THE beer has been flowing and cash registers ringing, with fully vaccinated residents turning out to celebrate the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.
Stay at home orders have been lifted and retail, hairdressers, clubs, pubs, cafes, gyms and many other businesses opened for the first time in 106 days after the state hit 70 per cent double vaccination.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said today’s milestone was only possible thanks to the efforts of so many people embracing the public health messages.
“The people of NSW have earned this moment setting a cracking pace in getting the jab to protect our communities and businesses who have had such a tough time these past few months,” Mr Perrottet said.
“Today is just a taste of the freedoms to come with the State on track to pass the 80 per cent double vaccination mark within weeks, and if we keep on going, we’ll ensure lockdowns become a thing of the past.”
Treasurer Matt Kean said the Roadmap would kick-start the State’s economic recovery.
“Every citizen in the State has made huge sacrifices in the past couple of months to keep ourselves, our loved ones and our communities safe,” Mr Kean said.
“As restrictions start to ease and we reach key milestones in our Roadmap, we have to get business back to business and get the economy going while staying safe.”
If you are not booked in for a COVID-19 vaccine, please book an appointment as soon possible.
