Queensland to slam border shut to all of NSW
The Queensland government have announced they will be slamming their border shut with the entirety of NSW as the state battles a growing outbreak of Covid-19.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced on Twitter the state will be closing the border to NSW from 1am on Friday to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading into the Sunshine State.
“This is an important step that allows Queensland to safely ease COVID-19 restrictions across the state,” the Premier’s tweet read.
Ms Palaszczuk said that in making the declaration of NSW as a hotspot, residents who live in the border zone will be able to come into Queensland for limited reasons, including healthcare, work, education, essential shopping and caring for vulnerable people.
