NSW reopens construction, no vaccination required

The NSW construction industry has started to return to 100 per cent capacity today with unvaccinated workers also permitted to work.

All constructions sites will be able to have one person per four square metres even if unvaccinated workers are present.

“From today, Monday 27 September, all construction sites in Greater Sydney, including the Blue Mountains and Wollongong, can resume with 100% of workers on site adhering to 1 person per 4 square metres. This includes sites in the LGAs of concern,” said NSW Health.
However, workers from the 12 Sydney local government areas (LGAs) of concern will only be allowed to leave their LGA for work if they are vaccinated.
If you live in or are temporarily staying in a LGA of concern, you must not enter a construction site in Greater Sydney unless you have:
• had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or
• had 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 21 days ago or
• had 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine within the past 21 days and you have been tested for COVID-19 in the past 72 hours (3 days) or
• evidence of a medical exemption and you have been tested for COVID-19 in the past 72 hours
