New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced today the state's border with Victoria will reopen at midnight on 23 November.
This means at 23 November, NSW will be open to visitors from all Australian states and territories, although its residents will still face restrictions elsewhere.
The news follows another day of zero new cases for VIC, which now has its 14-day rolling average down to 1.7, while NSW reported nine new cases in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
Three of those new cases in NSW were transmitted locally with the remaining six from overseas travellers in hotel quarantine.
All three of the locally acquired cases are linked to the Hoxton Park cluster, which now totals 10 cases.
On Monday, 23 November the NSW/Victoria border will reopen. We need to keep moving forward as we live with COVID-19. I have confidence that everyone will continue to work hard to keep everyone safe.Gladys Berejiklian (@GladysB) November 4, 2020
Today's news means while NSW will soon be open to visitors from all Australian states and territories, its residents will still face restrictions elsewhere.
As of yesterday Queensland has reopened its borders to travellers coming from NSW, although restrictions are still in place for people coming from Greater Sydney who will either need to spend a fortnight outside the NSW capital or 14 days in hotel quarantine in the Sunshine State.
On 6 November NSW will become a low-risk area as far as Tasmanian authorities are concerned, allowing the state's residents to enter the Apple Isle through the Tas e-Travel registration system.
From 14 November Western Australia will let travellers in from NSW, although they will need to spend 14 days in quarantine in "suitable premises".
Travellers from NSW are also allowed to visit the Australian Capital Territory, Northern Territory and South Australia so long as they are in compliance with the application processes of their respective governments.
