Tasmania open to all of Aus again

coronavirus update

Tasmania's remaining border restrictions on Greater Sydney will be lifted on Sunday morning.

10 local government areas - Blacktown, Burwood, Canada Bay, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Inner West, Liverpool, Parramatta and Strathfield - which were classified as 'medium risk' will become 'low risk'.

Arrivals who have spent time in those locations won't have to quarantine when they get to the Apple Isle.

“This decision has been made based on the absence of community cases in the past fortnight along with extensive contact tracing and testing undertaken by NSW Health authorities.” Director of Public Health Dr Mark Veitch said.

“Anyone remaining in quarantine in Tasmania who had been in these areas will be free to leave quarantine from 12.01am Sunday (31 January)."

NSW has gone 12 days without a local case of coronavirus, although authorities there are still calling for higher rates of testing.

The announcement means once again there's unrestricted domestic travel to the island state from anywhere in Australia.
