NSW Covid update: more vouchers and expanded outdoor dining as vaccination rate surges


NSW recorded 406 new locally-acquired Covid cases and six deaths on Thursday

The New South Wales government has announced a suite of measures to help businesses to expand outdoor dining and incentivise people to go out and spend money this summer, as surging vaccination rates mean the next phase of restrictions could be lifted within days.

As NSW recorded 406 new locally-acquired Covid cases and six deaths, the Perrottet government announced it would hand out a further two $25 vouchers to every adult in the state, with one able to be redeemed at restaurants and the other for entertainment venues.
