South Australia eases border restrictions with NT and QLD

An ease in restrictions have been announced this morning regarding South Australia’s border arrangements with Queensland and the Northern Territory.

It has been announced this morning that border restrictions with most of the Northern Territory will be lifted, as well as areas in Nothern and regional Queensland.

Following Queensland lifting their lockdown, and only recording one new locally acquired COVID case, from 4pm today restrictions will be eased in the state including those from northern and regional Queensland, who will no longer need to quarantine or be tested on arrival into South Australia.

The ABC has reported that for the Northern Territory, only those travelling from the local government area (the Katherine region) will now continue to be required to be tested and complete quarantine when travelling into South Australia. 

There is expected to be a press conference later today where Premier Steven Marshall and Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier will announce an ease in state restrictions, including a lift on the number of individual allowed in home private gatherings, which according to the ABC, will be lifted from 10 to 20 at midnight tonight.
