From 1 am Wednesday, residents of Byron Bay and Tweed will be banned from crossing the border, except for essential workers, according to Sky News Queensland editor Peter Gleason.
Those essential workers need to prove that they are coming to Queensland for work purposes.
As announced on Tuesday, Byron Bay, Tweed and Kempsey will all be blocked from 5 pm after a COVID-positive man travels to Ballina on a virgin flight.
“This is another example. Only eight days after the border bubble burst, we are now back in a square,” Gleason told Sky News Australia.
“And, of course, from September 18th to 20th, I saw the man in and around the Byron Bay-Tweed area. There were some examples of that particular person going out in the community.
“Therefore, Queensland has real concerns. Of course, for people in northern New South Wales, what that means is that you can’t enter Queensland without passing essential services, repeating. Is not possible. ”
