Pools to reopen at at 70% double vaccination coverage

NSW Roadmap to freedom unveiled for the fully vaccinated

Happily, the NSW Government on Thursday announced that public swimming pools will be able to reopen to fully vaccinated folks the Monday after the state reaches 70% vaccination coverage for people over 16. The expectation is that this will occur in mid-October.

The Premier has made it abundantly clear that the new privileges will only be available to those who are fully vaccinated:

“I cannot stress enough how important it is for people to get vaccinated – if you have not had both doses of the vaccine by the time we hit the 70 per cent milestone, you will not be able to take advantage of these freedoms,”

Premier Berejiklian

Refer to the NSW Roadmap to freedom for more information.

So, if you wish to swim at the pool you will need to have had both vaccine doses.

Updated public health orders will guide us about the specifics and we will incorporate any relevant restrictions into our COVID-safe plan.
