The exemption for formals and graduations was signed of yesterday by NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard, however, unvaccinated students will still not be allowed to attend house parties or nightclubs.
‘The HSC students of 2021 have had an incredibly tough 18 months, including substantial time without face-to-face teaching, and missing out on seeing friends and family,’ Mr Hazzard said.
