Wee Waa Bowling Club president Wayne Booby said it was great to see the community socialising again after COVID-19 lockdown.
“It’s brilliant to see people out again, and a relief for many,” said Mr Booby.
“Every business has been doing it tough.”
An excited group gathered at the club for bingo last week despite the stormy weather.
“Rain, hail or shine – we’ll be here,” said Colleen Combo.
“It’s great to be back,” added Robyn Thompson.
Later this month, patrons entering pubs, clubs and other venues will need to be double vaccinated as part of the NSW government’s ‘roadmap to recovery’.
The double dose requirement is expected to start on October 11 when NSW reaches its 70 per cent vaccination target.
“It’s a great thing that we have had the Royal Flying Doctor Service come to town to help with clinics, and a lot of the town has been vaccinated,” said Mr Booby.
The government’s ‘roadmap’ may be fine-tuned by NSW Health depending on the latest COVID-19 information.
From December 1, further changes will be introduced including all venues moving to the 2sqm rule, masks will not be required indoors at offices, indoor pools and nightclubs can reopen, and unvaccinated people will have greater freedoms.
