Despite the easing of restrictions in NSW in coming days, health authorities have urged people to enjoy their freedom safely.
“NSW is in a very good position but we know that is very volatile,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“We have to be as vigilant as ever. We have to make sure we do not become complacent, that we stick to the COVID restrictions and rules to make sure that all of us stay protected.”
The state’s Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant urged everyone to remain diligent with the use of the QR code system.
“While we are putting an incredible protections at our borders, and rolling out vaccines to our border workers and quarantine workers are the highest priority, the risk of an event where we get that transmission is still ever-present,” she said.
