The New South Wales border with Queensland remains open despite a growing COVID-19 cluster and lockdown in the Greater Brisbane area.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian is urging people not to go to the Brisbane area if they don’t have to.

She said she wouldn’t be surprised if cases of COVID-19 are found in New South Wales following an outbreak in Brisbane. However, no new cases were detected in New South Wales as yet – over the past day, after 7,300  people were tested.

Anyone in New South Wales who has been in Greater Brisbane since March 20 must follow ”stay-at-home” orders.
