COVID-19: 1 December – Queensland welcomes visitors from New South Wales and Victoria

COVID-19: 1 December – Queensland welcomes visitors from New South Wales and Victoria

Most of Australia’s border restrictions have been eliminated (except Western Australia), although Queensland continues to make all Victorians and Sydneysiders from New South Wales (NSW) quarantine for 14 days if they enter. If you are visiting from anywhere else from NSW except Sydney, then you have been welcome since 3 November.

That will all change on Tuesday 1st December, when Queensland will welcome visitors from Sydney and the whole of Victoria – provided no new cases are reported on Wednesday (25 November).

Some time ago, the target for opening the Queensland border to Sydneysiders was set at 28 consecutive days with no cases of unlinked local transmission of COVID-19.

That leaves the only area excluded from visiting Queensland as Adelaide, still designated as a hotspot by Queensland. The Queensland Premier is set to review the situation regarding South Australia at the end of November.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Thanks, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, but this might be too late for Sydneysiders to plan a Far North Queensland or Daintree holiday, and who wants to visit Brisbane unless they have to anyway? (I’ll get texts about that comment).

In case you are wondering, that featured image at the head of this story is a Cassowary – a native prehistoric bird you can find in Far North Queensland. Any resemblance between the attitude to borders of Premier Palaszczuk and the Cassowary is purely coincidental.
