Glen Innes and Orange to leave lockdown tonight

Glen Innes and Orange to leave lockdown tonight

As of midnight tonight, stay-at-home orders for Glen Innes and Orange will be lifted, but the local government area (LGA) of Hilltops will remain under lockdown conditions for a further week from tomorrow.

While residents of the two LGAs will be free to leave their homes, they will be subject to some restrictions to ensure community safety.

Meanwhile, due to ongoing community transmission of COVID-19 in Hilltops, which includes the town of Young, the LGA’s lockdown will last until Friday 1 October.

“We need all people throughout NSW to continue to come forward for testing at the first sign of even mild symptoms,” NSW Health said.

"High vaccination rates are also essential to reduce the risk of transmission and protect the health and safety of the community.”

The changes to rules in regional New South Wales comes one day after stay-at-home orders lifted in Albury and Lismore, and two days after Byron, Tweed and Kempsey went back into lockdown.
