South Australia will reopen its border to New South Wales on Thursday, Premier Steven Marshall announced in a press conference today.

The move, which is “subject to no community transmission occurring between now and midnight tonight”, comes after a meeting with the state’s transition committee this morning.

South Australia’s soft border closure to NSW has been in place since March 22. From midnight tomorrow, people entering the state from that region will no longer need to self-isolate for 14 days, but they will still be required to complete a pre-approval form online.

SA reopened its border to those flying in from the ACT last week.

More to come.
