Helen BS: NSW, Oz - lockdown ends 11 Oct 2021 (39) BS: NSW, Oz - lockdown ends 11 Oct 2021 10 Oct 21


Tomorrow the residents of New South Wales (NSW) will have Freedom Day, with some caveats to behave sensibly and still abide by some COVID restrictions.

In Newcastle, Oz, we were suddenly and without proper warning placed into lockdown on Friday 6 August, so we've been stuck at home for nearly 10 weeks except for essential reasons to leave home, but some Sydney areas have been locked down for much longer.

Today our state of NSW has reached 72.8% double doses of vaccination for everyone aged 16 years and over, however the percentage of double doses is not evenly spread across the state due to a number of factors.

Because we reached the 70% target this week the people who are double-vaxed in NSW have been granted some freedoms, starting from midnight tonight.

This comes with a lot of potential problems. I'm hoping with all my heart that everyone will act sensible with a high level of working together as a community to prevent high outbreaks. Judging on past history, there will still be enough hedonistic, self-entitled yahoos who will put the community in danger, so - here's the phrase which says it all in this COVID crisis - "we're not out of the woods yet".
