South Australia has tightened its restrictions with Greater Sydney again.
Premier Steven Marshall said as of midnight Monday, South Australian residents returning from Greater Sydney will no longer be allowed to easily apply for exemptions online due to the “seriously deteriorating situation in New South Wales”.
Exemptions will be provided but on a “much narrower basis” and with a higher level of scrutiny, he said.
Those escaping domestic violence will be allowed, but they will need to go into hotel quarantine.
Truck and freight workers who move across the border will also face tougher testing requirements.
New South Wales reported 112 new local cases on Monday.
SA is on high alert after a man from Greater Sydney travelled through the state while infectious with COVID-19.
The man, who is a removalist, stayed overnight in Victoria on Thursday, June 8 before driving to South Australia on Friday, June 9 and later returning to NSW, where he tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.
It’s believed the man entered the state as an essential worker via the land border.
Contact tracers are now working to establish the man’s movements.
