WA border to officially reopen to NSW and Victoria on Tuesday as promised

Western Australia’s border is set to reopen to New South Wales and Victoria on Tuesday as scheduled, Premier Mark McGowan has announced.

The WA Premier took the weekend to receive further tests results from NSW after a Sydney quarantine hotel cleaner tested positive to COVID last week.

The border reopening is to go ahead with the 14 day quarantine period dropped for those coming from both NSW and Victoria.

The decision comes after no locally acquired cases were recorded in NSW following the case.

“It is very pleasing to know that no further cases have been identified over the past five days,” McGowan told reporters.

“I want to acknowledge and thank everyone for their patience and understanding.”

The premier also announced that from Friday, travellers from South Australia will no longer require exemptions to enter the state.

They will still need to quarantine for 14 days.
