Western Australia set to reopen borders to NSW and QLD.

Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan

Latest news comes from Western Australia will reopen its borders to NSW and Queensland from next week Monday, but travelers will still be needed to self-isolate for 14 days and get a COVID-19 test.

Queensland has recorded 15 following days of no verified community transmission and NSW seven.

Victoria was also reconfirmed as a low-risk state prior this week. People from all other states and regions are allowed to enter WA with no self-isolating.

All arrivals at Perth will be necessary to undergo health screening and a temperature test and to present for a COVID-19 test during the isolation period.

Health Minister Roger Cook advised West Australians to continue examining good hygiene practices and utilizing the SafeWA app when they go out.

The latest set of testing at six wastewater care plants across Perth has shown no unpredicted detection of the virus.

Inactive viral remains were detected at the Subiaco plant but Mr Cook said that was likely because of its locale near Perth’s quarantine motels.

“The wastewater testing program is giving an additional level of surveillance for COVID-19 in Western Australia,” he replied.

“But it does not change the vital need for testing people with signs of COVID-19 which is the basis of any COVID-19 strategy.”
