Victoria records zero COVID-19 cases, NSW-Victoria border could reopen, US COVID-19 cases rise amid 2020 election, Australia death toll at 9074th November 2020
“The advice I have received from [NSW Health experts] has allowed us to maintain the strategy we have,” Ms Berejiklian said. “The approach taken by WA and Queensland, in particular, does not make sense.”
“The announcement by NSW is a logical one, but what it highlights is the lack of logic that Queensland and WA have placed in relation to their border strategy.”
She said as long as states and territories continued to get on top of outbreaks quickly, she was confident the November 23 date would hold firm.
Ms Berejiklian added the use of QR codes would be compulsory for all hospitality businesses from November 23. Businesses can have their own QR code, but she urged people to use the Service NSW code.
“The 23rd of November will be a significant day in NSW, but we believe the dual strategy of opening up our borders to all Australian citizens, all New Zealand citizens, in addition to making QR use of codes compulsory for hospitality businesses is an important step forward,” she said.
