NSW Premier thanks communities for Covid safety record

It’s been 10 months since the last positive Covid 19 case was seen in the New England North West, and following the recent Covid cluster in Sydney, residents and businesses across the region have been doing everything they can to ensure we remain Covid free.

According to a recent social media poll, many are fearful of the virus because of what it can do, and a lot of residents don’t want to see lockdowns enforced on them again.

While she was in Tamworth last week to hand over the keys to a new tanker for the Rural Fire Service, NSW Premier Glady’s Berejiklian, who knows our Covid record in the region, thanked the residents and business owners who have complied with the Covid rules and kept the region Covid safe.

“I want to thank regional communities for everything they’ve done to keep the community safe and we’re grateful that everybody has been taking the advice we’re providing…we’ve made sure we’ve kept borders open, businesses going, but also allowed our regional communities to move freely around as much as possible,” Ms Berejiklian said.
