While licensed venues, gyms, beauticians and other businesses reopened their doors across South Australia, the state’s borders remain firmly closed with no indication on when they might reopen.
Premier Steven Marshall celebrated the reopening of pubs yesterday with a beer at Norwood’s Alma Tavern, but would not buy into the question of throwing open state borders.
While the Premier reaffirmed that the existing border rules would stay for the time being, the Government is thought to be exploring the idea of establishing “travel bubbles” with the ACT and Tasmania.
Meanwhile, Business SA’s boss Martin Haese is pushing for borders to reopen, as long as it’s safe, The Advertiser reports.
The state’s transition committee will meet today to discuss border openings.
South Australia continues to record no new cases of COVID-19, with the only confirmed active case in the state the British woman who was allowed into the state under an exemption on compassionate grounds.
