Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has shut the border with all of New South Wales and the ACT, declaring them all coronavirus hot spots.
The decision will take effect from 1am on Saturday, Ms Palaszczuk told reporters on Wednesday morning.
‘This is the right thing to do. I know it’s going to be tough on Queenslanders,’ she said.
‘But your health comes first. We’ve seen what’s happened in Victoria – we don’t want to see that happening here. Businesses have said to me loudly and clearly that they do not want to go backwards.’
