SA and rural NSW border opens

From midnight tonight, travellers from rural NSW entering SA can do so without quarantining, but will be required to get tested on days one, five and 12.

South Australia’s border with New South Wales has opened but only for rural travellers.

From midnight January 13, travellers from rural NSW entering SA will no longer be required to quarantine, but will need to get tested for COVID-19 on days one, five and 12.

SA Health also says that those in quarantine who have recently come from rural NSW will have their cases reassessed.

The hard border will stay in place for Greater Sydney, Wollongong, Central Coast, and Blue Mountains.

The greater Brisbane border restrictions will also remain in place, however, SA Premier Steven Marshall says that officials are hoping to change the restrictions with Greater Brisbane in the coming days.

Case Update

There have been two new cases found in SA, both from recent overseas arrivals in medi-hotels.

The two men in their 30s are not related.

There have been a total of 590 cases in SA, 12 of which are active.
