NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has promised eased COVID-19 restrictions in a week’s time, if all goes well, after the community heeded her call to drive up testing numbers.
Almost 20,000 people were tested for coronavirus in NSW in the latest reporting period, nearly double the figure for the day before.
Berejiklian joined Jonesy & Amanda to discuss the importance of testing, as well as the potential of the easing of restrictions.
“Get tested if you don’t have symptoms,” she explained, addressing key workers.

She went on to remind us that those who have been in close contact with a positive tester must quarantine for 14 days, even if they test negative.
Testing numbers have increased after the government’s plea for more people to come forward. Some 19,959 people were tested in the reporting period, almost double the 10,621 tested the previous day.
