We should know within a few weeks the impact that Omicron will have on vaccine efficacy.

That shouldn’t affect WAs border opening timeline, so of course it will.

Im not scared at all. Just expressing an opinion.

The government has already shut the borders to countries affected by this variant. It’s effective immediately which means they know this is likely a highly virulent strain. It’s not a massive leap from listing countries to a return to fortress Australia.

That’s my guess anyway, I wonder if we have learned any lessons from delta.

Won't happen before the federal election is over. Can't have that pesky Scottie from Marketing visiting and 14 days quarantine sort of stuffs Scottie's electioneering up.

I did laugh at this...


Australian government announced flights from South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Eswatini, and Mozambique are banned...
How many is that then?

Sadly you may be correct. If so how about we are allowed to leave this time?

Singapore Airlines are offering flights to Brisbane and Adelaide from 15 January, Perth from 1 March.

WA is closed to SA due to Omicron.🤣🤦‍♂️(Seriously).

SOPS 27th Nov 2021 08:06

I repeat. I can’t see WA opening its borders anytime soon.


Arrivals from South Australia 30 minutes ago (4.30pm) have been told they have to do 14 days Q, or return to SA.

And the borders are starting to come down again for international arrivals.

NSW is ordering All travellers who have been in any other overseas country during the 14 day period before their arrival in NSW must travel directly to their place of residence or accommodation and isolate for 72 hours, pending further health advice;

Oh FFS grow up. First of all a border is either open or closed. It is not Schrodingers cat! Your post shows that the border is in fact OPEN with the condition you go home for three days.

As of this moment yes. But who really can not see this is likely going to get much worse in the coming weeks. The border can remain as “open” as you want to believe it to be, but this is going to kill international travel numbers before it even really kicks off again so will have a similar effect as being shut.

Can’t believe how quickly some of you lot believe the media hype! Impressive words like ‘monstrous’ mutation and so on! Wow. Get back under your rocks and take cover!!! And be careful the sky doesn’t fall on your head too!

Information out of SA states that no one has yet been hospitalized with this ‘scary variant’. Im sure some will be but ffs, life has to go on now! You cannot keep stopping and restarting life!!!

2 cases in NSW just announced. Let’s see how the states react during the day. WA will make a new level of “stay the F away” category above the very high risk. QLD will be interesting they love nothing more than to close off to NSW id think they might delay their opening now.

minigundiplomat 27th Nov 2021 20:03

Nice to see the fear has started already.

Although you might be right about the reactions of various premiers for interstate border restrictions the two COVID-19 cases that arrived in NSW are not yet confirmed as the Omicron strain (not sure if you were actually implying that they were).

LapSap 27th Nov 2021 22:05

More importantly, I want to know why the WHO skipped a couple of letters of the Greek alphabet and went for Omicron. Seeing as the letter before that is “Xi”, I wonder if there was a quick phone call from Beijing saying it wouldn’t be a good idea to call it that. :yuk:

DirectAnywhere 27th Nov 2021 23:24

NSW - 14 days isolation for all flight crew, 3 days for pax pending advice. Joke. Flight crew have just been cut off from their families and society again.

52 States in North America and I’m trying to research each states entry requirements. Can only find a single statement on quarantine requirements on arrival ? Is Australia more fractured and divided across state lines than the USA ?

krismiler 28th Nov 2021 00:36

Pharmaceutical companies are looking into the new varient to see if vaccines need to be tweeked, most case so far are of unvaccinated people so the present vaccine is at least partially effective.

COVID precautions are already in place, as are large scale vaccination programs. As we're coming upon to nearly a year since people started getting vaccinated, another shot or at least a booster jab is going to be needed for most people in 2022 anyway.
