COVID-19 UPDATE – 04th OCTOBER -2021 – NSW-GOVERNMENT
As we reach 70% vaccination rate it’s time for NSW to get back to business.
The 3 stages for NSW to move out of stay at home orders have been announced:
70% full vaccination target reopening starts for fully vaccinated people – expected to be Monday 11 October 2021.
80% full vaccination target further easing of restrictions for fully vaccinated people – expected to be Monday 25 October 2021.
Wednesday 1 December 2021 further easing of restrictions for everyone whether vaccinated or not.
When we reach 70% full vaccination make sure you know how to reopen your business safely, and follow all safety guidelines for your industry including:
- Physical distancing and density limit of 1 person per 4 square metres for indoor areas
- Employers must continue to allow employees to work from home (where possible)
- Masks for staff and customers indoors, and for hospitality staff outdoors
- Ensure your employees are informed of your safety plan; if they feel unwell they must stay home, get tested and isolate – even if they are vaccinated.
Service centers located in areas where restrictions have eased are gradually phasing in driver testing. If you had a booking we will be in touch with you. Note that priority customers are being contacted first.
Driver testing in areas that are still under restrictions remains suspended.
- 15th September 2021 – Update Auto and Manual LEARNER Drivers CAN GET BACK BEHIND THE WHEEL
L-platers unable to rack up much-needed driving hours in Sydney’s lockdown have been given the green light to jump in the driver’s seat.
From today, learner drivers are again permitted to head out on the road for driving lessons, after Health Minister Brad Hazzard signed two new exemptions to the Public Health Order into action. The exemption only applies to a learner and one supervising driver, who both must live under the same roof.
There’s also welcome news for bookworms, with the government also giving the green light to click and collect services at libraries. Do you know a parent who’s eager to get their kid’s driving hours up?
Our driving school is open with its driving classes, despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
