It is not fresh news that Victoria has futher outbreaks and that those who should be quarantining have not been complying with self-isolation guidelines.
The New South Wales Government has announce that anyone travelling into the state from Victoria hotspots could be fined $11,000.00 or face a period of imprisonment.
The health Minister Brad Hazzard is signing a public health order today which prohibits anyone from 10 specific postcodes in Victoria from entering New South Wales.
The current Victorian hotspots include Pakenham, Hallam, Brunswick West, Maidstone, Sunshine West, Albanvale, Keilor Downs, Broadmeadows, Fawkner and Reservior.
Mr Hazzard when on to say
“Victorians living in virus hotspots have to take the Victorian and NSW health orders seriously and should be very aware that NSW will impose penalties if they seek to leave hotspot suburbs to enter NSW”
Victoria has faced a new outbreak and recorded 73 new coronavirus cases, the state’s virus total now sits at 2231 cases.
This has occurred after confirmation that among the new cases 3 were from hotel quarantine and 9 were associated with contained outbreaks. 42 remain under investigation.
What are your thoughts?
Should other States follow New South Wales and restrict those from specific postcodes?
