NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced today that the New South Wales / Victoria border will close for travel in both directions from midnight tomorrow night. (Wednesday July 8)
The agreement between the Prime Minister, NSW Premier and VIC Premier
came about based on health advice on Monday July 6.
This comes after Victoria’s recent surge in community transmission COVID – 19 cases, forcing multiple postcodes into lockdown.
“We wouldn’t have taken this step unless we absolutely had to” said Berejiklian.
NSW Police will enforce the border closure.
Exceptions will be made to those who have filled out an online exemption form and had their travel circumstances accepted.
The border will remain closed until further notice.
