South Australia has moved to delay the lifting of border restrictions with NSW and the ACT amid concerns over the rise in COVID-19 cases in Sydney.
Premier Steven Marshall says the state’s transition committee has met and decided not to go ahead with the lifting of quarantine measures on July 20.
He says of particular concern is the “super spreader” event associated with the hotel at Casula, in southwestern Sydney, with many people now in isolation.
The news comes following a new spike of the virus New South Wales, with 28 cases of COVID-19 now linked to the Crossroads Hotel Cluster.
Meanwhile, Victoria has recorded another day of triple-digit increases with 270 new cases confirmed across the state.
