Premier Dominic Perrottet says New South Wales is “leading our country out of this pandemic” as the state reaches 90 per cent first dose vaccination coverage.
“The efforts every single person across NSW has made has ensured that tomorrow we can open up cautiously, safely, but importantly provide opportunity and prosperity for the people of NSW,” he said at a media conference on Sunday.
“That’s not on the government, that’s on every single one of our people.”
The Premier urged residents to treat each other with kindness and respect when the state opens up to the fully vaccinated on Monday.
“It’s an exciting day for our state, but I do want to reiterate, we need to do this in a safe way,” he said.
“Please treat everybody with respect, with kindness, that will be key as we move through this period of time.”
