AUSTRALIA NEWS: South Australia Prime Minister urges WA to allow families to reunite at Christmas

South Australian Prime Minister Steven Marshall plans to face Western Australian counterpart Mark McGowan over the ongoing difficult border between the two provinces.

Mr Marshall argued that there was no reason for families not to reunite and by Christmas now the state no longer had a coronavirus.

Currently, the WA government is adhering to the 28-day non-COVID days to reduce borders on Boxing Day, assuming South Africa does not register new cases.

The border will soften on Friday, but travelers from South Australia will have to separate for 14 days.

It will remain the only border in Australia with significant restrictions.

Leaders are about to meet in Canberra for the last annual Cabinet Cabinet, but Mr McGowan is expected to be present soon.

Meanwhile, the people of South Australia are looking forward to lowering the barriers in the new year, as Mr Marshall pointed out what could change in early 2021.

“The power of residential areas, be it cinemas, theaters, sports infrastructure,” he said.

This could allow for a larger audience for the Fringe and Festival game in March, and larger crowds at the Adelaide Oval which is the current volume later in the cricket season.

“We are exploring ways in which we can gradually and carefully increase that volume,” said Mr. Marshall.

QR codes will be enforced at all state stores from Monday, and morning drinks will also be allowed in bars.

But Australia Hotels Association SA chief executive Ian Horne said the day should have been postponed.

“We have two more weekends before Christmas, why not bring it forward for three days?” he said.

But Mr Marshall said Monday’s decision would stand.

One of the government’s priorities is to ensure that the COVID-19 test numbers remain high, and is a major weapon in detecting any hidden charges from the public.

There were 2700 tests yesterday, almost 4000 less than last week.
