Despite initial plans to open all South Australian borders to interstate travellers on July 20, the Premier Steven Marshall has announced that the Victoria border will not reopen.
Victoria recorded 75 new cases yesterday, with Victoria’s Chief Health Officer, Brett Sutton warning that the increase “will get worse before it gets better.”
Despite Mr Marshall confirming last Friday that the state is committed to opening its borders, the new decision was made as a result of the recent outbreaks in Melbourne.
Exceptions for travellers coming into SA from NSW and the ACT will be announced later this week.
There has been no new date set for the opening of the border between SA and Victoria.
Also announced yesterday is the new process by which travellers can enter SA.
Despite eased border restrictions, travellers will need to apply for approval prior to arrival to SA.
More to come.
