Sydney Gradually Reopens for the Vaccinated Citizens of COVID-19

The Index Today

On Monday, Australian authorities announced their plans to gradually reopen locked-down Sydney, announcing a two-tiered system that will give vaccinated citizens more freedoms than their unvaccinated neighbors for several weeks.
According to the announcement, the movement restrictions across New South Wales, the country's most populous state and home to Sydney, will be lifted slowly between Oct. 11 and Dec. 1 as vaccination rates push through 70%, 80% and 90%.

However, people who are not fully vaccinated will be blocked from joining the vaccinated to resume community sports, dining out, shopping and other activities until the final date.

State Premier Gladys Berejiklian said in a televised briefing that "Unlike most cases in the world, if you are not vaccinated you will have to wait at least four or five weeks ... in order to participate in things that the rest of us can participate in.”

"If you want to be able to have a meal with friends and welcome people in your home, you have to get vaccinated."

Berejiklian did not detail how the block on activity by the unvaccinated would be enforced.
