Border restrictions will be reinstated for the local government area (LGA) of Glen Innes Severn, as New South Wales announce a positive COVID-19 case in the area.
The Glen Innes Severn LGA will become part of the restricted New South Wales border zone from 1am Saturday 18 September.
Border zone residents who have been to Glenn Innes Severn LGA will only be allowed into Queensland for limited essential purposes.
Queensland residents may only return to Queensland if they have entered the restricted area (Glen Innes Severn LGA) for limited essential purposes.
To enter Queensland from an LGA within the border zone you must:
- complete a Queensland entry pass
- get tested if you develop any COVID-19 symptoms after arriving in Queensland
- monitor the list of interstate exposure venues daily (at least once every 24 hours) from the time you complete a declaration and for 14 days after arriving in Queensland
- comply with face mask requirements.
Anyone who is currently in Queensland but has visited the area in the last 14 days should get tested if they have symptoms and isolate until they receive a negative result.
We will continue to monitor the situation in New South Wales and review restrictions as the situation evolves.
