Close contacts of COVID-19 contacts will still need to self-isolate even though the quarantine requirement is set to be scrapped in NSW.
Mr Perrottet said the isolation period had been reduced to seven days for the fully vaccinated.
“We will provide further clarity in relation to that, but what’s very important is what the perception of the close contacts is,” he said.
“Before, if you walked into a restaurant or you just, like myself, had a coffee a mile away from the person who had COVID, that constituted a close contact with 14 days of isolation.
“That’s not the pathway going forward. If you have a family member, for example, who has COVID, you’ll be deemed a close contact.”
