At today's media conference, (September 17, 2021), NSW Premier Gladys Berjeklian announced that NSW is firming up arrangements for 7 day home based quarantine for fully vaccinated inbound travellers. 

The initiative is welcomed by many as it means the fee of $3000 per person for hotel quarantine would no longer be a financial burden in addition to the cost of fares.

This follows the lifting of curfew for local government areas of concern, and allowing some concessions for fully vaccinated individuals.

Today's figures of cases and vaccination rate are as follows:
