There is always going to be a ‘taxi’ or ‘hospital’ or ‘gym’ or ‘restaurant’, whatever event..... Always.And this afternoon:
Following the case of an infected taxi driver in NSW, however, Mr Marshall expressed caution regarding the decision today.
"We're not going to rush it. We've got to make sure we don't have a second wave here in South Australia," he said.
Long list of epidemiologists there expressing their learned opinions.Some good news coming for regional Victorians and hopefully SA will follow suit.
Melbourne won’t be too far behind for NSW hopefully if they continue their downward trend.
NSW plans to open border to regional Victorians
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has flagged the possibility of opening her state's southern border after regional Victoria recorded successive days without any new coronavirus cases.
Ms Berejiklian said she was monitoring the situation closely in Victoria and will act swiftly to remove border restrictions.
“These are all the options we’re considering," she said. "But I do want to make sure that we don’t have those border checkpoints for a day longer than we need to,” she said.
Victoria’s peak medical group said it was now safe for NSW to reopen to regional Victoria while tourism groups also welcomed Ms Berejiklian’s comments, saying they provided some hope for the immediate future.
The Australian Medical Association's Victoria president Julian Rait said the low infection rate in regional Victoria meant it was safe to allow its residents to travel in NSW.
“There’s almost zero cases now in the regions so that’s perfectly sensible, if not overdue,” he said.
Tourism and Transport Forum chief executive Margy Osmond said Ms Berejiklian’s comments would allow the industry to begin planning for the next step
Rural Councils Victoria deputy chair Jenny O’Connor, who is also the mayor of Indigo Shire in the state’s north-east, said it was safe for Ms Berejiklian to open up to regional Victoria because numbers were so low.

The fact that Gladys has given a nod that it’s under consideration means Dr Chant is onboard. They actually seem to talk to each other which is amazing.Long list of epidemiologists there expressing their learned opinions.
So many talking heads rabbiting on. How about we ask the two CHOs?
Yes. But what would the mayor know. And why is the AMA sticking their nose in contradicting when a medico is in charge. And how can the tourism forum plan anything until there is a date. Talking heads rabbiting on. The media feeding a load of crap to feed clickbait. That's why the TV has been off at my place the last couple days.The fact that Gladys has given a nod that it’s under consideration means Dr Chant is onboard.

Don’t apologise understand and hope today is a bit brighterYes. But what would the mayor know. And why is the AMA sticking their nose in contradicting when a medico is in charge.

Sorry, as you can probably tell, bad iso day.
AMA is trying to find a voice which has been lost whilst CMO's have the power in each state.And why is the AMA sticking their nose in contradicting when a medico is in charge.
So anyone from NSW, and now SA, can go to Byron, and anyone from Queensland can go to Byron.She's absolutely right, but I still agree with the approach of Dr Young. Particularly as the QLD/NSW border is more populous than the SA/NSW one. And it seems everyone and their dog in NSW is desperate to come to QLD.
That's pretty pathetic on their part.Update from the QLD announcement.
QLD have completed their monthly review of borders. They are unfortunately unable to review border restrictions more than monthly in contrast to weekly for other states.
Sydney restrictions therefore will not be reviewed until mid October. We do apologise about this but that means technically Sydney will actually have to achieve over 28 days of no community transmission / mystery cases before QLD can make a decision - because of the timing of our monthly meetings which is all we can manage.
However, the SA announcement has just poured a heap more pressure on QLD to justify...
Give them a break, must be very stressful having to attend a meeting, read a report and make a decision EVERY month.unable to review border restrictions more than monthly
