NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian step up to speak today she is expected to make an announcement on the further easing of the southern border today, as regional areas of Victoria open up.
In a Facebook post, Albury MP Justin Clancy said he had discussed the border with the premier:
“Travelling to Sydney yesterday my first port of call today was to contact the premier to stress the importance of the border restrictions being eased in line with changes to the Victorian regions. I’m pleased that the premier spoke to this later this morning, saying she will make an announcement tomorrow regarding changes to coronavirus restrictions for border communities.
It comes as Victoria Premier Dan Andrews said regional communities will be able to move more freely from 11.59pm [Tuesday].
Ms Berejiklian has said NSW would also amend restrictions for consistency.
This will bring more relief for our border communities.”
Regional Victoria is now in the “third step” of reopening, meaning cafes and restaurants can begin some “dine-in” services, school is set to return and groups of up to 10 people can gather outside.
