Mr Toole told 2GB’s Ben Fordham on Friday morning the state government decided to push back the travel date to November 1 following a meeting on Thursday.
The confirmation comes as NSW prepares to hit 80 per cent double-dose vaccination coverage by the end of the weekend, signifying the further easing of restrictions from Monday October 18.
“I know it’s frustrating and I know it’s a very difficult time because I know that people are wanting to pack their bags, they’re wanting to go out to regional NSW, they want to go on a holiday, they want to go and catch up with their families and their loved ones,” Mr Toole said.
“But I will confirm with you this morning, that regional travel will be allowed from the 1st of November.”
Greater Sydney residents will be banned from travelling to regional New South Wales for at least another two weeks, Deputy Premier Paul Toole has confirmed
