COVID-19: Queensland to open borders to NSW as of 1 February 2021
Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk has today announced that all current border restrictions that apply to residents of NSW, will be lifted as of a minute past midnight on Monday1 February.
Most of NSW could already cross the border, except for Greater Sydney, and more specifically a set of local government areas that had recorded outbreaks associated with the Northern Beaches and Berala cluster.
Apparently, contact tracers in NSW were racing to link 6 new infections before Queensland reviewed its border closures, and they did it!
Annastacia Palaszczuk is expected to hold a press conference from Cairns, in far north Queensland later this morning.
Let’s hope that Steven Marshal makes the same announcement about the South Australian borders later today. If that’s the case, I will be on a plane next week!
