A spokesperson for Mr Perrettot said the reason Auslan interpreters were not present at some press conferences is because they were not led by NSW Health.

“As NSW returns to a more normal setting,?there will be some media events where the services of Auslan interpreters will not be requested,” a statement read.

“NSW Health will continue to book Auslan interpreters at press conferences… and?at any press conference where the Chief Health Officer or Deputy is providing a public health update.”
