Interestingly this afternoon the online Courier Mail had an online article stating that a decision on the border full opening would be made on the Friday prior to Saturdays vote.

Within a very short time frame the article disappeared.

Lets see what happens.

How could've there have been a hysteria about lockdowns in his country which never really locked down to begin with and has let the virus run rampant?

I don't think we need to listen to this guy (a history writer btw) or his moronic countrymen across the Pacific for medical advice, how about follow the lead of our neighbours to the near north who've controlled the situation far more successfully.

This inept QLD are rally something. They are going to release a "road map" for border opening on Friday not sure why a road map is needed just open in damn thing, it shouldn't be closed anyway. In the mean time they let their resident hang out in Byron Bay without realizing over 1000 supposed highly infections and contagious Sydney and NSW people go.

The NSW border is still closed to people in Victoria.

Even NSW residents, who have only been in regional Victoria, have to spend two weeks quarantine in Sydney to get home.

And NSW still doesn’t have a roadmap or timeline for opening their border.

Layman,
why would NSW need a roadmap or timeline for opening their border?.....Their borders are all ready open, with the only restrictions being to those that have been in Victoria within the last 14 days (with exceptions for Border residents etc). They are even allowing International NZ arrivals.

And fair in enough re restricting those who have been in Victoria. Even the Victorian Government is still cautious as to whether they have Covid under control or not......the Melbourne Metro still has the 25 mile “RIng of Steel”, so why would NSW allow unimpeded travel from Vic?

Regional Victoria is ‘banned’ as well even with lower case numbers than Sydney.

The ACT has a list of Victorian postcodes that can come to Canberra without quarantine but that seems too hard for NSW

Im sure even you, would agree Victoria is a different case all together. Gladys said this morning she is waiting to see if VIc ease restrictions further as she is of the opinion even Vic gov don’t have faith in their contact tracing.

Sorry. Can't agree..

It seems NSW are unable / unwilling / too lazy to differentiate between regional Victoria and Melbourne.

The ACT manages this by examining postcodes. Why can't NSW do the same?

NSW residents can't return home even when they have been in Covid free areas in Victoria for months - unless of course they fly from Melbourne to Sydney, quarantine for 2 weeks ($3,000), before driving home. Almost back to the border, Eden, in the case of one bloke I have spoken to. He hasn't been home to his family since before August. Pre-Covid, he used to drive home every 2nd weekend.

We're now able to transit through NSW back to the ACT, but this has only changed this week. The area we're in has had 2 Covid cases since April ..,,,,

Well there goes qld. That moron is scared of her own shadow, and with the timing of four unlinked cases, we can kiss travel goodbye again. All because some peanut took a tour of Sydney whilst sick.

Queen P is never going to open the border, not sure what would lead you to believe otherwise. W.A and QLD are just exposing their inadequate control of the virus. I understand they cant do what NSW are doing we just have to learn that those states will stay closed for the foreseeable future.

Would've been a great PR exercise to be open to Regional Vic. Especially when you consider (from an Aviation perspective) that there's multiple airports in Vic capable of sustaining QLink or Rex and/or currently are. Hell, there's even Avalon fer cryin' out loud!

I still believe that the State Govt's. are the masters of their own destiny and it's worth looking at how necessary it is for their existence.

She needs to get her testing numbers up,it was great for her & her peanut sidekick to be sticking it into victoria when it suited but now she has to find another agenda.
No doubt the vic govt need to be made accountable for the hotel quarantine f up but overall the rules imposed(& yes,i hated them) have worked.
Almost 50,000 tests in the last 2 days,hopefully lo numbers continue.

Yep I agree. QLD carry on as if they’re the best whilst only conducting 900-2500 test a day. VIC are now killing it hopefully their contact tracing is up to the task tho. Gladys made a few very valid comments on WA and QLD today I would love to see those premiers reply to her comments, they would have nothing.

I can already see Anastasia Double-Chin pulling out the bullying card when everybody else “slams” their border shut to QLD when they have their turn at an outbreak.
