NSW cases drop to 787 with 12 deaths

NSW cases have dropped markedly, with 787 new local cases recorded to 8pm on Sunday. However 12 people have lost their lives.

The state has also reached the 60 per cent double dose mark, and passed the 85 per cent first dose target.

The 12 deaths include six men and six women, including four people aged in their 60s, two people were in their 70s, four people in their 80s, and two people in their 90s.

NSW now has 85.5 per cent single dose vaccination coverage in over 16s and 60.1 per cent double-dose vaccination.

From the Monday after 80 per cent of NSW residents 16 and over are fully vaccinated, eased restrictions will allow those who are fully vaccinated to have up to 10 people in their home, take part in community sport, and go to cafes, pubs and restaurants.

All venues will operate at a one person per 4 sqm indoors rule, and one person per 2 sqm outdoors rule.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the 80 per cent roadmap will also remove the limit of fully vaccinated guests for weddings and funerals, and services like hairdressers and beauticians.

Regional travel will not be permitted until the 80 per cent vaccination rate is hit.
