NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is expected to confirm a virus lockdown will be extended by a week after meeting with health experts late on Tuesday.
The NSW government is expected to confirm a coronavirus lockdown imposed on millions of people in five regions will be extended by a week, as the state continues to record more than a dozen new cases each day.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian spent most of Tuesday locked in discussions with health experts to gather information on “what next week looks like”, ahead of a crisis cabinet meeting.
With the new school term due to begin next week, students in those five regions are likely to be mostly learning from home. The children of essential workers will be able to attend schools, as has happened in earlier lockdowns.
Students outside those regions should be able to go back to school.
