Lockdown to lift tonight for Albury and Lismore

Stay-at-home orders introduced last week for the New South Wales local government areas (LGAs) of Albury and Lismore will no longer apply from midnight tonight.

However, the two LGAs will remain under some restrictions in order to ensure community safety, according to NSW Health.

“We thank the communities of Albury and Lismore for their co-operation and for coming forward for testing in large numbers,” NSW Health said.

“We need all people throughout NSW to continue to come forward for testing at the first sign of even mild symptoms. High vaccination rates are also essential to reduce the risk of transmission and protect the health and safety of the community.”

The easing of restrictions comes one day after Byron, Tweed and Kempsey went back into lockdown after COVID-19 cases were detected in the region.
