SA closed to greater Melbourne from midnight. WA will follow shortly after I think.

They were already closed or required 14 days quarantine as does NT
Tas & Qld obviously so desperate for any tourist dollar still open (though Tas closed to some Melb Suburbs including CBD)

But the great news is that that Labour Socialist Left ideals & dictums have not been compromised


We got the best hotel quarantine in da world .........

Interestingly, though completely unsurprisingly, NSW is again carrying the lions share of the incoming passenger load


KRaviator - you appear to be attributing a politician with altruism.

As the two are mutually exclusive I suggest you look elsewhere for a reason...

I would suggest money, as thats what usually drives them.

Is ($$)mandatory($$) hotel quarantine cashflow worth maxing out while it lasts?

All down to risk management I suppose.

Every time DA opens his mouth an outbreak occurs, remember June last year his comment to SA “why would anyone want to go to SA” boom hard lockdown 900 dead. DA has a go at Premier Gladys telling her that his HQ is superior and now it’s happening again. Time for DA to go he is incompetent.

121 years of narking, patronising disparagement and we're supposed to feel warm and fuzzy about the eastern states? Really?
I 100% support you guys moving on, best for everybody I reckon.

That's NOT going to happen, they love him down there. The more he lies, the more he locks them down, the more they love him.

Yes. I'm afraid we'll never be able to provide the degree of forelock tugging and subservience that the "old states" believe to be their due..

In SA's case, that's incorrect. SA only required a test on arrival followed by self isolation until a negative test was returned. Then another test on Day 5 and Day 12.

I know this because I had planned to travel to SA next week.

Hey McLimit, do you think this -

Take some time to read the breathtaking arrogance from someone who had over 800 people die from decisions he was responsible for

Might have something to do with why -

Also, you lot from other States wonder why NSW shakes their heads at you lot.


Seems you want it both ways.

Or does the need for a three week lockdown not fit the narrative...

Re the MEL Holiday Inn outbreak. To be fair, the same nebuliser driven outbreak (assuming that's what happened) could have happened in any other state undertaking hotel floor Q ( NT, not looking at you ). Personal baggage from your flight is certainly not searched in WA. Had he sick man arrived into Perth with his nebuliser, the same infection would have happened to a similar number of people and they may have been worse off with (until last week) no community mask wearing and limited testing.

SOPS - if you read the fine print of most the states, such exemptions have always been in the fine print. I'm not as intricately familiar with SA's as I have been with every other state, but I'd be surprised if it was different.

The (Christmas) Northern Beaches outbreak, source remains undetermined.

"Also, you lot from other States wonder why NSW shakes their heads at you lot."

Indeed.

If you test positive while in HQ in Qld, you are transported to a Covid ward at a hospital. You do not stay in HQ.
