The news

Victoria’s Premier Daniel Andrews has announced he is closing the border to NSW from midnight tonight.

“Therefore and with no sense of anything other than the seriousness of this, these are not easy decisions to make and it will mean significant inconvenience for many people, I must announce on the best public health advice that from 11:59pm tonight we will declare all of greater Sydney and the Central Coast a red zone,” Mr Andrews said today.

“Beyond that the Northern Beaches will become a hot zone and what that means is that nobody who is from those parts of Sydney, greater Sydney or has visited that part of greater Sydney will be allowed to travel back to Melbourne or any part of Victoria,” Mr Andrews said today.

“If you do arrive back or travel here you will face 14 days of mandatory hotel quarantine.”

Mr Andrews said arrangements for getting back into Victoria will be “slightly different” for residents of Victoria, if they return home before midnight on Monday.

“If you, as a Victorian who has been in greater Sydney, come back to Melbourne before, not midnight tonight but midnight Monday night you will have to be tested within 24 hours but you will be able to do your 14 days of quarantine at your home.

“If that is not safe we will try and put you up in a hotel.

“That is a special arrangement for those from Victoria coming back to Victoria.”

It comes as Western Australia also announced it was reinstating its hard border with NSW from midnight last night.

Premier Mark McGowan said the hard border, which means all NSW residents will need to apply for an exemption to access the state, was necessary to keep his state safe.

It comes as Gladys Berejiklian announced a ten person limit on gatherings in people’s homes, for all of Greater Sydney, including the Blue Mountains and the Central Coast.

The Premier also announced hospitality, religious and other indoor venues will move back into a four square metre rule across all of Greater Sydney. Venues had previously been allowed one person for every two square metres of space in a venue.

A 300 person cap has also been introduced for all venues to assist contact tracers in case of a superspreader event.

NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant has also warned that as contact tracers work to find the source of the northern beaches outbreak, it might be a “challenge beyond us”.

‘If you are from Greater Sydney do not come to Melbourne’

The Victorian Premier has taken a swipe at the NSW Health response to the northern beaches cluster, saying the Victorian response is “stronger than those that are in NSW at the moment”.

“That’s just a statement of fact. It’s not a statement of judgement,” Daniel Andrews said.

“But I think for the NSW government have outlined, they have further steps today, they are largely of an advisory nature and who knows how things will play out over the next couple of days.”

Mr Andrews said he would not “wait around while they add to their rules”.

“We are going to protect what we have built and that is why the border will be closed from midnight tonight.” He said the basic message is a “very clear one”.

“If you are from Greater Sydney do not come to Melbourne. Do not go anywhere in Victoria and as far as Victorians are concerned, do not travel to Sydney.

“Do not travel to Greater Sydney. I cannot be clearer than that. Because I can tell you when you come home you will finish up in mandatory hotel quarantine.

“These are not easy decisions, but they are on the best public health advice. We believe they are proportionate and we believe it is appropriate we take the steps rather than waiting for NSW to have a different set of rules in place.

“(We) cannot control what they do, we can only control our (response) and that is exactly what they intend to do.”
