THE state is set to reach 80 percent double vaccination on Sunday, but the government has delayed the easing of travel restrictions between the regions and Greater Sydney, with no date given for when the restrictions will now ease.
Initially the travel restrictions were going to lift at 70 percent, but was delayed until 80 percent, due to low vaccination rates in the regions.
Unfortunately the vaccination rates in some regional areas are still much lower than the state average and the government has made the decision to further delay the easing of travel restrictions until those vaccination rates rise.
Locally, some local government areas are more than 20 percent behind the state average, posing too high a risk for restrictions to ease.
