It is still too early to reclassify any of NSW local government areas of concern, the Premier says.
“I would love to be in a position where we could proactively announce areas that are no longer areas of concern and the glimmers of hope are there,” Gladys Berejiklian says.
“There is some stabilisation in key local government areas which have had the highest number of cases. We suspect and hope, fingers crossed, it’s because the vaccine rate is starting to kick in, but we can’t tell you. It’s too early.”
The Premier said they would wait until the end of the week to make any decisions regarding restrictions in the 12 local government areas of concern.
