South Australia’s Premier, Steven Marshall has announced a further round of easing COVID-19 restrictions in SA.
Effective as of midnight tonight, South Australia will cease to have a border with Western Australia, Norther Territory and Tasmania.
People coming or returning from those states will no longer be required to complete a 14 day quarantine.
Mr Marshall states that these jurisdictions have not yet opened their borders to South Australia. This will mean that those travelling to these states may be required to complete the 14 day quarantine.
Those travelling from these states must come to SA via direct travel, with no stops in other cities.
Furthermore, individuals from WA, NT and Tasmania who are currently completing their 14 day quarantine will not be required to complete their isolation period.
Mr Marshall says that removing the Queensland border will be considered next, with meetings set for later this week or early next week to reach a decision.
The removal of these borders is also in an effort to trigger the restart of airlines and flights coming into South Australia.
Remaining borders in SA are to be removed on July 20.
As of this Friday 19 June, public assemblies of up to 300 will be permitted in SA.
Indoor Fitness Classes
Indoor fitness classes which have previously held a 10 person limit, as of this Friday will be allowed to raise their limit to 20 people.
However, this will only apply for venues that can provide seven square metres per person.
More to come.
