ACT border restrictions to lift, NSW border to remain closed

South Australia’s Police Commissioner, Grant Stevens has announced that as of midnight tonight, travellers from the ACT will no longer be required to quarantine for 14 days.

The long awaited decision on borders with New South Wales and the ACT has been unveiled, following advice from Health officials.

South Australia’s Police Commissioner, Grant Stevens has announced that as of midnight tonight, travellers from the ACT will no longer be required to quarantine for 14 days when entering SA.

The quarantine requirements for NSW travellers will remain in place, due to continuing community transmission of COVID-19.

Travellers from the ACT will only be able to enter SA by air, as travel routes by road pass through the NSW border where quarantine applies.

Those entering are still required to declare that they have not been outside of the safe community zone for 14 days prior to travel, and fill out other relevant declarations.

Mr Stevens says that SAPOL and SA Health officials will ideally look at the decision on lifting border restrictions with NSW, following 14 days of no community transmission in the state.

More to come.
