Close contacts of the NSW school will not be forced into solitary confinement due to changes to COVID-19 rules which take effect from Monday.
The adjustments mean that students in close contact should take a PCR test as soon as possible after being informed and return to school if it is negative provided they undergo a rapid home antigen test during the seven days and do not return any positive results.
Schools will no longer close for contact tracing, except for several cases in the same school.
Performances involving musical instruments that rely on breathing, singing and singing are also permitted outdoors in schools.
The NSW government has also talked about rule changes beyond 95% or the Dec. 15 easing.
Masks will only be needed on public transport, at airports and for room reception staff without vaccination after the first of these milestones has been passed.
Density limits for venues will disappear, with QR records only at high risk sites, including hospitals, elderly and disabled care, gymnasiums, places of worship, funerals, places of worship. hospitality, indoor music festivals with 1,000 or more clients, and personal services including hairdressers. Businesses will not be required to require customers to be vaccinated, but have the right to continue to require proof.
