Masks will no longer need to be worn on public transport in Greater Sydney from midnight tonight.

There have been no more local coronavirus cases linked to a Woollahra couple who were diagnosed with the virus last week.

Genomic sequencing traced the Woollahra man and his wife’s infection to a US traveller who spent time in hotel quarantine. However, it is still not known how the virus was passed on to the couple.

NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian announced today the restrictions introduced in response to the two new cases would be eased from midnight.

This also means limits will be removed on the number of guests allowed to visit private households.

Drinking standing up in pubs, singing indoors and dancing at clubs will also be allowed.

Three people in hotel quarantine have been diagnosed with the virus in NSW in the latest daily figures recorded up to 8pm last night.

The state has topped 900,000 vaccinations in total, with 4,285 given out over the past day at the new Sydney mass vaccination hub at Olympic Park.

“The total number of vaccines administered in NSW is now 919,016, with 280,135 doses administered by NSW Health to 8pm last night and 638,881 administered by Commonwealth Government providers including GPs,” NSW Health said in a statement.
