QUEENSLAND BORDER BUBBLE EXPANDED AS STATE RECORDS ONE NEW CASE

Cross-boarder movement between New South Wales and Queensland should become easier, with the border bubble expanding to include two new postcodes.

From tomorrow, people in towns including Weengalloon, Limevale, Inglewood, Gore, North Star and Deepwater will be able to apply for a special exemption.

The Queensland Premier Anastasia Palascak said the decision is to make the movement between states easier for the border communities.

“We are continuing to work with people when it comes to their health concerns, but also when it comes to the movement of agriculture,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

Lismore MP Janelle Saffin said after lots of lobbying, she is very relieved and pleased to confirm 2475 and 2371 post codes are in the border zone bubble.

The news comes as Queensland records one new case of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.

The infected man, in his 40s, is in hotel quarantine after returning from Papua New Guinea.
