South Australia is set to open borders with NSW and the ACT holiday could be back on the map

BREAKING NEWS: ‘It Could Be Tomorrow’: Interstate Vacations Could Be Back On The Map THIS WEEK For Millions Of Aussies As South Australia On Its Way To Reopen Its Borders

Prime Minister Steven Marshall will announce that South Australia will drop its COVID-19 border restrictions with NSW and the ACT.

Speculation is growing. The state transitional commission is scrapping 14-day quarantine requirements Tuesday.

But Mr. Marshall says he will not do anything contrary to the health advice.

“We want to give a helping hand as much as possible to those people who want to travel as quickly as possible,” said the prime minister on Monday.

‘The numbers look very good. Only four new (coronavirus) cases in NSW. If they give us the advice tomorrow, we’ll open that line very quickly.

“I would really like to open that border as soon as I get the advice that it is safe to do so.”

In other changes to the coronavirus rules, the prime minister said he was hopeful that a crowd of up to 25,000, or about 50 percent capacity, would be possible in Adelaide Oval for all AFL finals.

He said there were a lot of people at matches over the weekend and SA Health officials were looking at how those games could increasingly consider taking the next steps.

SA did not report new virus cases on Monday, keeping the state total at 466 since the start of the pandemic.

The state has no active infections.

More to come.
