Tweed returns to Queensland border bubble

When the blockade ends on Wednesday, two more municipalities on the North Coast of New South Wales will be added to the Queensland border bubble.

Residents of Tweed Heads and Byron Bay will be allowed to enter Queensland after being blocked following the infectious COVID-19 incidents in both Shah last Tuesday.

Previously, residents were allowed to cross borders only for essential work, emergency volunteering, and limited essential purposes.

But as of Wednesday, people in the expanding border bubble could re-enter Queensland for work, education, compassionate care, and essential shopping if they were vaccinated once. I can do it.

Chief Health Officer Janet Young said the decision was made in connection with a New South Wales directive.

“As soon as NSW announces the changes, we will check them and, if it is appropriate for us, we will place them properly,” she said on Tuesday.

Although there are certain restrictions on the LGA, NSW Minister of Health Brad Hazzard thanked the residents during the blockade for their compliance.

“Thankfully, there were no more cases of concern, so the public health team advised us to get out of the blockade,” he said.
