NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced curfews will be lifted in hotspot LGAs from tonight.

The change in rules comes as the state records 80 per cent of first dose vaccinations.

1259 new cases and 12 deaths have been recorded.

The Premier has confirmed vaccine passports will be written into health orders once the state reaches 70 per cent double doses.

Burwood Mayor John Faker told Deborah Knight his LGA needs to be rewarded.

“This reason to having us as a hotspot area still doesn’t make sense.

“Reward my residents! Give them a break from these stupid restrictions.”

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour says he’s confident the removal of the curfew was a result of the mayors meeting with the Premier.

“Treat us like the rest of Greater Sydney and give us our recreation time back.”
