Queensland reopening to Greater Sydney from next Monday

Queensland will reopen its border to Greater Sydney from Monday, 1 February, meaning any person in New South Wales will be able to cross the border north unrestricted.

The announcement comes after NSW recorded 10 consecutive days of no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 yesterday.

Palaszczuk has encouraged those in Sydney to visit QLD for a well-deserved holiday.

"Now that the Chief Health Officer has recommended it's safe for Greater Sydney residents to come to Queensland, the borders can come down," she said.

"People have done a terrific job looking after each other through the pandemic and now Queensland is good to go.

"I want to encourage anyone in New South Wales who is thinking about having a holiday, come up to Queensland."

 

 

QLD reported one new case of COVID-19 yesterday - a person in hotel quarantine.
