qld wa borders in doubt as nsw records new virus case

WA has warned it would slam its door shut if NSW recorded new community cases of the virus. Here’s what it means for travellers.

Western Australia was set to open its borders to New South Wales and Victoria on December 8, on the condition of no new cases, but the emergence of a community transmission case in Sydney has the state on edge.

Premier Mark McGowan announced on Tuesday families who had been separated for eight months under the state’s strict border closures would be reunited by Christmas, as long as there were “no further community cases in NSW”.

He said at the time if there was an outbreak in other states or territories, then he would not hesitate to put up the hard border.

On Thursday, a spokesperson said the WA government was awaiting advice before it made any decision.

“WA’s chief health officer will seek further information from NSW before providing advice to the Premier,” the spokesperson said.

It’s understood chief health officer Dr Andrew Robertson will monitor the situation and await NSW Health’s investigation before he makes a formal recommendation on the borders to the Premier.
