ABC News reported that Queensland Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said “Anyone who has been in Greater Adelaide since 1am on the 28th of November who arrives in Queensland after 1am tomorrow will be required to go into 14 days mandatory home or hotel quarantine.”

“They are required to be fully vaccinated. But if they arrive after 1am tomorrow … we don’t require them to have a negative PCR test.

“What we do require is them to get a test as soon as they possibly can.

“Anyone arriving after 1am Monday the 6th of December, you will need to receive a negative COVID PCR test result in 72 hours prior to arrival, as well as being fully vaccinated.”
