Cancel Those Travel Plans: SA Won't Be Fully Opening Its Border Back Up To NSW Yet After All
If you’re a NSW or ACT resident with upcoming plans to travel to South Australia, you’re unfortunately going to have to put them on hold. SA announced today that it won’t be opening back up to visitors from those two states next week as it had planned, reports the ABC.
Currently, travellers from NSW and ACT are required to self-quarantine for 14 days after entering. The rule was set to be scrapped on July 20, but now it looks like it’ll be in place indefinitely as cases in NSW rise.
South Australia’s premier Steven Marshall said the state’s transition committee had decided there is too much uncertainty around the COVID-19 situation in NSW to remove it. "We know this is going to be very inconvenient… but our primary responsibility in South Australia is to the health, safety and welfare of all South Australians," Mr Marshall said via ABC.

Mr Marshall added that the decision came after NSW’s “super-spreader event” at Sydney’s Crossroads Hotel, which saw 21 people test positive for the virus. "There are now many hundreds, in fact, probably in excess of one thousand people that are now in isolation as part of that," he said.
The SA border is now open to those coming from NT, QLD, TAS and WA. You can keep up-to-date with SA travel restrictions here.
