    The WA Government has maintained its coronavirus restrictions on people arriving from New South Wales, requiring travellers to self-quarantine for 14 days after they arrive.

    WA Health Minister Roger Cook said a mass testing program was being carried out on all those who travelled to WA from Sydney after the cut-off period, with results still to come in.

    Mr Cook said that based on current public health advice, state borders would remain open to NSW – though with the caveat that that could change at any moment.
