Covid restrictions in New South Wales will remain in place for another month, the premier Dominic Perrottet has announced, saying the state was taking a “cautious” approach amid an expected increase in cases as schools resume across the state next week. The NSW Government will extend current restrictions for another month as the State continues to take a measured response to managing COVID-19 with a focus on a safe return to school and restarting non-urgent elective surgery as soon as possible.
