South Australia will reopen its borders to New South Wales on Thursday, South Australia’s 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.
More to come.
The South Australian government has restricted public gatherings and recommends minimal social contact to minimise the spread of coronavirus. Some parks or tourist destinations may still be closed, or operating at reduced capacity.
