A new plan to reopen pubs, restaurants and retailers in New South Wales for fully vaccinated customers in the coming weeks has largely been welcomed by the affected industries, but there are significant legal and logistical questions confronting businesses about how they will manage their new obligations.
As part of the “roadmap to freedom” unveiled by the Berejiklian government on Thursday, hospitality businesses including pubs, restaurants and cafes, as well as retail settings, entertainment venues and health and beauty services, will be able to reopen after the 70% double dose vaccination target is achieved.
