Sydney unveils roadmap out of COVID-19 lockdown

The Australian state of New South Wales - home of the city of Sydney - unveiled a roadmap for COVID-19 lockdowns on Monday.
The head of state Gladys Berejiklian said in a press conference that the "staged reopening" gives the residents different freedoms depending on their vaccination status:
“For those of us who are fully vaccinated on the 70 percent double dose, life will feel so much better. Life will feel like it's going back to normal.
And, of course, some 80 percent of the time comes into play, including community sports, regional travel, and much more.
The first of December will then be the last phase of the reopening, in which unvaccinated people can participate. "
Berejiklian also announced that 60 percent of people over 16 in New South Wales are now fully vaccinated, well above the national average of 52 percent.
Sydney officials believe they will hit their 80 percent target by the end of October based on current vaccination rates.
On Monday, the state relaxed some of its restrictions so that construction sites can once again be used to full capacity and outdoor swimming pools can be reopened with social distancing.
The arrival of the Delta variant in Sydney in June sparked Australia's biggest wave of infections.
The city accounted for nearly seven-tenths of the country's 100,000 cases.
The federal government has announced that 70 to 80 percent of Australian adults will need to be vaccinated before they can implement national reopening plans.
However, some virus-free states say they may keep their borders closed even if they achieve that goal.
