NSW aged cares homes to allow visitors from October 11

Aged care visitors allowed back

Previously, tough visitor restrictions on aged care residents had been left out of plans to reopen the state, despite the fact residents have been banned from seeing loved ones for months.

From so-called ‘freedom day’, October 11, two fully vaccinated people will be allowed to visit friends or relatives in residential aged care in NSW.

Visits will be capped at two per day, per resident.

However, grandkids will not be allowed, with children aged 12 or under excluded from the two visitor limit.

“We know it is welcome news for so many people,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Sadly, the news comes on the pandemic’s deadliest day in NSW, with 15 deaths recorded in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, first dose vaccinations have reached 86.2% in the state, with NSW expected to reach 90% by the end of next week.

A total of 863 new COVID-19 cases were reported today. The “dramatic drop” has been attributed to such high vaccination rates, said NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard.

“Vaccination is the way out of this current issue in New South Wales and being vaccinated is the single most important step you can take to protecting yourself, your family and your community,” Hazzard said.

The Health Minister also has high hopes that 97.5% of healthcare staff will be vaccinated by the end of this week, reminding the remaining 2.5% of workers that they may end up unemployed.

“There won’t be a position available for them in New South Wales Health. It is pretty simple,” Hazzard stated.

  1. Have you asked the question?

    If this so-called vaccine people are bullied into getting so they can participate in society, protects the vaccinated from catching Covid -19 why are the unvaccinated a threat to the vaccinated? Is it because the vaccine does not protect and does not prevent people from catching the Covid-19 virus?
    The NSW premier has no authority to force vaccination passports, nor does she have the authority to enforce mandatory vaccinations or prevent those that are not vaccinated from participating in society and in all social activities that they see fit to participate in.
    The citizens of Australia are facing a domestic enemy. Government officials were elected to protect the freedoms and liberties of their citizens not lord above them and control their thoughts and actions by bullying and threatening to take away their fundamental rights if they do not take the jab.
    There is no statutory authority to enforce mandatory vaccinations. Stand up for what you believe in and do not cow down to a tyrannic government that has overreached its authority.
    Look up the Nuremberg Code.
