Another 399 virus cases have been recorded in NSW as the state creeps closer to hitting the 80 per cent double dose target.

There were also four deaths.

The NSW Premier is expected to outline changes to the road map later on Friday with new freedoms to be made available to fully vaccinated residents from Monday – if the state does reach the 80 per cent target this weekend.

These include increasing the size of home and outdoor gatherings and reducing density limits on venues and businesses like hairdressers.

Regional travel is still off the cards in November 1, NSW Deputy Premier Paul Toole revealed on Friday.

The backflip has sparked fury after the government promised regional travel would be permitted at 80 per cent.
