Fully vaccinated residents in COVID areas of concern may be given less freedoms than those in other other areas in October.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian would not say whether freedoms would be equal when asked twice at the daily media conference today (Wednesday).
On Monday, Ms Berejiklian said, "What I am clear about is when we get 70 per cent double dose vaccination, each and everyone of our [fully vaccinated] citizens will enjoy a freer existence".
Questioned today, the Premier said, "Everybody should expect a level of freedom that they don't have today and, in relation to those settings, we are going through the road map, getting the health advice".
"It will also depend on a number of other factors," she said.
"But, let me be very clear, wherever you live in NSW, please expect to have much more freedom than what you do now so long as you're vaccinated fully and so long as 70 per cent of our residents are vaccinated."
Ms Berejiklian was then asked, "Will people in hot spots get equal freedoms to people who aren't in hot spots"?
The Premier replied, "Well we are obviously looking at all those issues but I do want to say to every citizen, no matter where you live life will be much, much better, much freer so long as you are vaccinated and 70 per cent of the adult population are vaccinated".
"We will provide details as soon as we can. We are obviously taking input from stakeholders, from our health experts and also comparing it to the national plan."
NSW recorded 1116 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
