  Details about 80% vaccination Covid roadmap are revealed in NSW In an interview with Daily Mail Australia, an upbeat and optimistic Mr Perrottet revealed nightclubs will re-open when 80 per cent of over 16s are fully vaccinated. Community sport will also return.In an interview with Daily Mail Australia, an upbeat and optimistic Mr Perrottet predicted a glorious summer boom for the state's economy after residents are finally released from a four-month lockdown in October.

NSW ' s new three-stage freedom plan revealed: Gladys confirms the state will reopen on October 11 and unveils what you will be able to do at 80 per cent - from travelling to standing up to have a beer. A one person per four square metre rule will be in place for indoor venues with a one person per two square metre rule for outdoor areas. Personal services such as hairdressers, spa, nail , beauty, waxing, tattoo and massage venues will be uncapped but must obey the four square metre rule.

NSW Premier Gladys questioned over anti-vaxxer freedoms in Dec as the state draws a road map out of lockdown.

New freedoms set to be given to unvaccinated people in NSW on December 1 are the final nail in the coffin of the federal National Plan, a health expert has warned.

Grattan Institute health economist and former health bureaucrat Stephen Duckett said he was "surprised" by the NSW decision to make public a plan to lift restrictions for unvaccinated people on December 1.

He called it a "very risky" venture that would leave unvaccinated people exposed to the dangers of the Delta virus and place a potential heavy burden on the health system.

Victor Dominello is the NSW Minister responsible for the crucial small business grants program that is meant to keep thousands of businesses alive during the Covid pandemic. The program has been so bungled that over 0 million worth of grants are still sitting with the Government while businesses NSW residents should be choosing which beach to go to on the weekend, or where to watch the footy finals, not worrying about whether the vaccine passport system will be ready, writes Chris Minns. I've talked to small businesses still waiting weeks to receive even small grants designed to keep them

He said the national plan, already the source of division and discontent among the federation, was now in tatters.

"The national plan did not contemplate these sort of lifting of restrictions in advance of every other state and in this type of environment in NSW," Mr Duckett said.

He accused Premier Gladys Berejiklian of "tearing up the national plan and using it as confetti", and claimed the December 1 date for unvaccinated freedoms was a sign of pressure from "anti-lockdowners" inside the Berejiklian cabinet.

"To date (the NSW Government) have only been talking about opening up to the vaccinated population," he said, explaining why today's announcement had caught him unawares.

Ms Berejiklian this morning detailed a NSW roadmap out of lockdown when a vaccination target of 80 per cent was hit, which is expected to happen on October 25.

When the 80 per cent target is reached, fully vaccinated people will enjoy a return to many freedoms, although safety protocols will still be in effect.

But Mr Duckett cautioned that the 80 per cent milestone only covered those aged 16 and over, which actually left one-third of NSW residents unvaccinated.

"About half of that number are children," he said.

Unvaccinated people had a "very high chance" of getting infected with COVID-19, Mr Duckett said.

"If you're an unvaccinated person in NSW, you've got to weigh up how you think the health system is going to cope.

"You've got to think about the risks to you personally when the virus is going to be spreading more widely."

Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant today estimated NSW would eventually reach 92 per cent of residents aged 16 and over fully vaccinated.

Dr Chant hoped 12-15 year olds would get to "a similar level" and said she was not sensing "a lot of hesitancy in the community" at present.

Mr Duckett warned coronavirus was now beginning to divide communities across Australian towns and cities, with household income a key factor.

"Essentially what we are seeing is COVID is becoming a disease of poor people, their families and communities," he said.

Mr Duckett feared NSW Health could come under growing pressure in the final months of the year, when restrictions are lifted and school kids in Greater Sydney return to class in the first week of November.

Demand for the vaccine was still outstripping supply in NSW, he added, which was leaving some people unvaccinated through no fault of their own.
