NSW is set to hit 80 per cent double dose vaccination over the weekend, likely tomorrow, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said.
However Sydney-siders will not be allowed to travel to regional areas until November 1.
Mr Perrottet said quarantine will be a thing of the past, instead people travelling into Australia will need to test negative and be double vaccinated from November 1.
