Coronavirus: Queensland ends divisive border ban on Sydney

Sunshine Coast Airport chief executive Andrew Brodie has welcomed the announcement that Queensland’s borders would reopen on December 1

Speaking to reporters this morning, QLD Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk confirmed the hard border between the states will drop next Tuesday.

Queensland requires jurisdictions to record 28 days of no unlinked community transmission of coronavirus before re-opening its borders to them.

The business' general manager of networks, Russell Shaw, said, "The additional services will be timed to provide choice and convenience for customers, while at the same time give travellers the opportunity to do business and reconnect with loved ones, families and friends ahead of the well-earned Christmas break".

It comes a day after Ms Palaszczuk announced travel from Greater Sydney will be permitted from the same date - but held off on a decision on South Australia.

The state is also set to open its border to Victoria from December 1, as long as the southern state does not record a new case tomorrow.

"Queensland is good to go. And as you know, Queensland, 'beautiful one day, ideal the next'".

"So all of their cases since then have been linked and able to be traced back to known outbreaks, known clusters, which means that we can reopen our border to New South Wales on December 1, which was always in our planning going forward", she said.

Victoria's Premier Daniel Andrews said Victorians could be proud of the state's COVID-free status.

"It was so unexpected when they got that case in South Australia and their hospital system down there is to be commended that they picked up that case so quickly who presented to one of their emergency departments".

"I encourage people, there's no better place to spend your Christmas holidays than Queensland".

Sadly, six Queenslanders with COVID-19 have died.

Australia will lift more internal state border restrictions in a boost for tourism as new coronavirus infections slow to a trickle, while the first vaccines could be available in March, a government minister said on Tuesday.

In a political flare-up, NSW state premier Gladys Berejiklian revealed she broke local health protocols a week earlier by failing to self-isolate for two hours between taking a COVID-19 test and receiving the result, which was negative. "We absolutely want to see our tourism industry continue to flourish and prosper".

"I will be absolutely thrilled if the Queensland border came down today ..."
