WA will have to throw a tonne of money to get anyone other than family to visit over there now. WA border antics are all forgotten over here in the sense no one seems to care about it MM has not had any air time for months other than what’s related to the Ashes and even that was a 10 second headline, SCG or MCG are happy about this I would think.

I guess WA can expect more of this treatment in the future. Sad that Sam Kerr wonít play a match in her home town in the biggest (womenís) tournament in the world.

Pure holiday visitors to WA from interstate pre-COVID were about 400k average per year (2016-2019) spending around $675m per year. They pull that much worth out of the ground every 1.2 days.

Fair point but only in dollar value.

Look at the distribution of where tourist dollars get s p r e a d around the state versus mining income.

Remember, it’s only worth what the buyer is willing to pay and it won’t last forever.

Well,well. NSW, Vic and ACT residents now need to test on arrival to SA

Queensland mandates all people from Adelaide need to isolate for 14 days.

so much for open borders. Who is next.


And internationally.

All international arrivals to the UK will again have to take pre-departure Covid tests in a bid to tackle the Omicron variant, the health secretary has confirmed.

All travellers, regardless of vaccination status, who are visiting England, Scotland and Wales, or returning home after a holiday will be required to take either a pre-departure lateral flow or PCR test under the new restrictions.

Why get vaccinated is the real question. They can jam the booster shot where the sun don’t shine if they mandate it!

Because you want to reduce your risk of seriousness illness of death.

Indeed, and to top it off the Guvmint have all but shut down with just a handful of sitting days before the next election. Given by their most recent performance it would seem they are handing over to the states. I look forward to 7 different countries as the states fumble about.

You obviously donít appreciate the impact that border closures have on families that live interstate. Money is everything is it? Who cares if grandma passes without ever meeting her grandchildren.

Assuming they can find someone to dig it. Not to mention all the other industries to can't afford to pay $150K+ to attract workers.

Mc Gowan will have to watch out next year as he could get wedged politically between the all important 'Health Advice' and the economy.

From what I have read this is also impacting on people's decision to move to WA for work. People's mindset has changed since Covid.

And thatís why a decision is imminent. To be announced after Nat Cabinet on Friday, around when the state hits 80% DD.

As to a stated opening date, 90% 12+, it could be sooner than stated. Currently 88% first dose (remember how a lot of people said West Aussies were too complacent and wouldnít even get 80%?), 90% comes in about 8 days. Then 4-5 weeks to dose 2, so could be Jan 10-20th potentially. May get that Ashes test squeezed in at the last moment. If they delay it then reopening is just a week or two later, hardly noticeable over a 2 year pandemic.

Not disagreeing with you but if only that week or two had been saved at the beginning instead letting 5 million loose over Lunar New Year instead of hiding it like Chernobyl, we wouldnít have had a pandemic. Academic now of course. Wondering what they know now that we donít, with their insistence on a zero Covid strategy for the Mainland and Hong Kong. Bye bye CX.

More dumb meaningless rules out of this backwater state. She wants to test those dirty folks from down south on Day 5. Meanwhile IF they are positive they have been roaming around our good state for nearly a week now? Pointless.

Testing 3-4 thousand people a day in Cairns? Geez that will break the non existent testing services up here. Havenít crunched the Goldy numbers yet.

Stupid. Dumb. What more should I expect. We will fine the living daylights out of you should you not comply. Save yourself the hassle our good friends down south, donít come here.
