Tuesday COVID update – 8 new cases, none in Hawkesbury, Wednesday am decision on restrictions
Speaking just now, Premier Gladys Berejiklian says she will wait until Wednesday morning to see if restrictions will be lifted, or not, across Greater Sydney – which includes the Hawkesbury – following low additional cases yesterday and overnight.
She said "the trend is going where we want it to go."
The Premier says being so close to Christmas makes a decision either way more difficult.
“Obviously the decision would be much easier if it wasn’t this time of year. But obviously we will try to consider mental health issues, we need to consider what people are going through as part of that decision as well but we also need to consider what it means for eight million citizens across the state."
