AUSTRALIA: State of Queensland reinstates COVID-19 travel restrictions at border with Victoria
The government of the Australian state of Queensland has announced that, in response to a COVID-19 outbreak within Victoria, it will from 27 May reinstate some travel restrictions for its residents who are set to travel to and from the southern region. From 27 May, only Queensland residents who have been in the region since 11 May will be allowed to return to the state, but they will have to go straight into hotel quarantine. Non-residents will be turned away, unless they have an approved exemption, but even then they will also be required to complete the mandated government-approved quarantine. Visitors and Queenslanders travelling from the City of Whittlesea from 27 May will also be sent into hotel quarantine, unless they have a valid exemption.
