ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “IN FULL: SA to keep borders open to NSW, Vic and ACT | ABC News” – below is their description.

South Australia’s borders will remain open but all travellers from NSW, Vic and the ACT will be required to have a test on arrival and isolate until result is received.

They will need to have a further test on day six if they’re still in the state.

“We remain extraordinarily concerned about the Omicron threat,” SA Premier Steven Marshall said.

“This has nothing to do with the Delta variant.”

There have been about 40 cases in SA since the borders re-opened on November 23, including the state’s first mystery infection reported yesterday.

SA Premier Steven Marshall, Health Minister Stephen Wade, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens and Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier are giving a COVID-19 update.
