South Australia’s Premier, Steven Marshall has announced further changes to SA’s COVID-19 restrictions including state borders, and Stage Three.
As of midnight tonight, the South Australian border with Queensland will open to travellers coming into SA.
Travellers will not be required to complete the 14-days of required quarantine.
Queensland joins Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania in states that SA has opened its borders to.
The Premier says that despite there being no cases in the ACT, the excess travel from Sydney still poses a risk for travellers coming into SA.
The Stage Three date has not changed and will remain on Monday 29 June.
However, further updates added to Stage Three include gaming rooms to open in pubs and clubs, and sitting down in food courts to also be allowed.
The Transition Committee is also looking seriously into changing the number of people allowed in small venues with the Premier saying that it remains an issue of density.
An answer will be provided to the public prior to the start of Stage Three.
Spectators at the Adelaide Oval will also be allowed to consume alcohol for upcoming games, which the Premier described as a ‘manageable risk’.
Venues will also now be allowed integrate billiards and darts, however, patrons will not be allowed to consume alcohol as the same time as playing.
More to come.
