Home quarantine is also expected to be discussed at National Cabinet today so we may hear more from the PM whether in a National Cabinet press release or a Press Conference or both.
SA has moved Into the second part of the trial which is overseas arrivals, in this case 100 ADF personnel. Not sure where they will be housed as many with homes may have family members.

Can't wait for them all to agree to a home quarantine ROADMAP (preferably a one page powerpoint) in PRINCIPLE then approximately 4 minutes after National Cabinet ends, sprint their cough to the nearest camera who cares to breathlessly retract everything and say they will do their own thing at their own time because they are so big and tough blah blah.

Sadly you could be right on that. Though I think you mean principle, not its homonym principal. Principal is generally used to refer to a head person e.g. the boss of a company.

I agreed in principle to the correction of my terrible use of the word principal but as I live in QLD I will use it in my own slow way and use it to protect all Queenslanders and WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN ;)

I actually hope they agree to a risk-based home quarantine system (ie State to decide for themselves) - based on the location you arrive from. Then transit requirements of where you arrived and where you want to stay at. I think the transit options need to be clarified and within it the State border might get leveraged.

7 day home quarantine trial for NSW!
that doesn't start until the end of this month and will only take 25 people a week for 4 weeks. So we are looking at end of October before any further movement on this front.

This. Is. Not. Good. News.

We have been hoodwinked by the government again.

only a small 4-week trial, with only 30 vaccinated people per week
(unvaccinated) kids can be included
no clear plans or roadmap on how this will scale up

Yes but said premiers are really smart, all their state constiuents will spend their hardearned money, their $50K trip money on QM2, first class airfares to Rome, private Antarctica Cruise money all locally on local tour companies and their states CBD hotels. Dont get to be head of states be dumb hey? Hey?

It seems the PM might be one of the participants in the trial? I think that's what The Guardian blog is suggesting, though I'm not sure.

NSW probably won't reach 80% till mid to late October. I would have hoped they'd start to bring back en mass Australians overseas earlier than that.

Hopefully if the early stages of the trial go well they will move to expand it.

Pretty good news to me, especially that it’s 7 and not 14 days.

The PM is going to the US this week (Edit: 21-24 Sept). The Foreign Minister and Defence Minister are already there.

PM had the vaccine more than 6 months ago and no known booster shot, so it will be interesting.

It'll have to scale up unlimited, otherwise you will enter a raffle to get one of the 30 spots to have benefit of home quarantine, maybe a 0.25% chance every week of being let out. Once you WIN you have to write a letter of thanks to the government.

As good as the vaccine push has been, the powers that be have decided October is suck-it-up month. No big movements till Nov.

Can we just start small then build up? We aren't even at the target numbers yet. Give it a chance.
