SA borders open to Queenslanders from midnight tonight

As of midnight tonight travellers from Queensland into South Australia will no longer be required to complete 14 days of self-isolation.

The removal of the self-isolation requirement brings Queensland in line with travellers from Western Australia, Tasmania, and the Northern Territory who have been able to freely travel into SA since 17 June.

The State plans on opening its borders to all remaining Australian states on 20 July.

This latest development comes as South Australia eases COVID-19 restrictions further today, increasing the number of patrons allowed to gather in public and in venues like pubs, bars, restaurants and clubs.

From today, the upper capacity limit per room in a venue moves from 20 people to 75, and the total capacity per venue has been increased from 80 to 300.

Fitness classes can now have a maximum capacity of 20 people where the one person per seven square metre rule can be observed.

The cap on public assemblies has also been increased to 300 people, and alcohol can now also be consumed at these types of events which includes public, outdoor sporting events.

The start date for Stage 3 easing of restrictions in SA remains at this coming Monday 29 June.

This will enable even more people to gather in public, with the four square metre per person rule to be applied broadly with no maximum capacity limit to be enforced.

For venues like smaller stadiums with a capacity of 40,000 people or less under Stage 3 they will be able to operate with specific restrictions in place.

Venues that run outdoor sporting or cultural/entertainment events can be operational as long as people are seated with a cap on 25 per cent capacity, meaning some venues may be able to have up to 10,000 people.
