But Tasmania does let you transit through a High risk area.So a taxi or Uber across the border straight to OOL and no passing Go and you would be fine.
So as long as you don't spend any time in Greater Sydney,Illawarra or the Central Coast you should be right.
The only problem is whether there is an outbreak in Northern NSW when you are there.But Tasmania of recent times only blocks areas if a lockdown is imposed by the relevant State government as well as any exposure site listed.And i really don't think Gladys is going to race into a regional lockdown.
Anyway Tassie will still let it's own quarantine at home but in the event of at outbreak in Tassie I would be thrown into the State penitentiary ( HQ ) if I tried to sneak back into QLD.
Thanks for that. My problem is that whilst I reside in Tasmania, I'm often in other States (does state of despair have Covid restrictions?!) so have to be very careful of my fourteen day back trail. I'm thinking everywhere is now accepting brief transit as not being an issue? Mind you, on Sunday I was advised I couldn't visit my father at John L Grove (LGH re-hab) because I'd been in Sydney airport in the previous fourteen days. I strongly suspect the advice was incorrect but there's a lot of confusion about and it's hard to argue on a Sunday. Now he's back in emergency and classified Blue, so I still can't visit him. World's gone crazy!

So I've got this right? If you are a Qld resident returning from say Sydney, you are automatically put into a Quarantine Hotel for 2 weeks? Not even a close contact of anyone, just returning?

Yes I believe so. Recently an AFF member had to move house from a then-restricted State to Qld and was required to do hotel quarantine.

The noise seems to be that SA will open up to NT and WA at tomorrow’s transition meeting. Also some talk about opening to NQ which will please the folk looking to escape the Adelaide winter

What's wrong with the Adelaide winter? I was there last week and it was great. Friday rained but the rest was mild and sunny.

Brother and SIL took that chance last Monday and flew to Broome to see their son and his young family whom they haven't seen in 3 years. 😔. They were about to go to Tom Price when Covid struck. They were more concerned about cancelled flights than having to do quarantine. She's a vaccination nurse at Noarlunga. And fully vaccinated back in March.

We are having a wet and cold winter but some nice days in between. You struck one.

I struck several. I always enjoy SA in winter, probably because I also like Tasmania in winter. The miserable days just make the good ones more special. Bit of a half glass full/empty perspective now I consider it!

Been fantastic this week so far, absolutely glorious but there is some bad stuff on the way. I love the cooler weather but many don’t like the cold mornings

They are only a blue patient until the covid test comes back so by now should be green.
Though we had a scare early this morning when over the PA system came a warning of a special transfer from ED to ICU.Special transfer means an orange or red patient being transferred.I admit my heart sank as if it was I might well be barred from going home by our lovely QLD health advisors.However turned out to be someone from QLD who was in HQ and fortunately not a covid case.

If your father needs a medical admission ask can he be transferred to 4D.Not because i would be looking after him but we have the most compassionate group of nurses in the hospital and the NUM is a treasure.Some of the other NUMs still block visitors.

With awareness I'm inviting a flurry of sarcastic replies (have at it! :)); anyone have any inside info on when WA will/might open to NT?

I was set to drop some decent $ in WA in August, not looking likely now.

I really do feel however its time to make fully vaccinated exempt from domestic boarder closures if they haven't been to a venue of concern i.e. aren't a close or casual contact.

I have a 3 day weekend in Sydney at the beginning of August...tickets to the theatre....possibly shaping up to be my 5th or 6th COVID cancellation.
