Rise in Victorian cases leading to tightened border restrictions
The New South Wales Government will introduce further restrictions on entering the state from Victoria.
In a statement released by NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard, from midnight tomorrow (July 21) a border zone, clearly defined along the Murray River, will restrict entry to NSW for Victorians to extremely limited purposes.
Under a permit, NSW border residents will be restricted in their reasons for travelling into the Victorian side of the border zone.
If they travel beyond the border zone into Victoria, they will be required to self-isolate upon return for 14 days.
Any other NSW resident who crosses the Murray River, or otherwise enters Victoria or has been there in the last 14 days, will be required to self-isolate for 14 days on their return to NSW.
