    Scott Morrison will push premiers to open Covid-19 borders by Christmas

    Open for Christmas! Scott Morrison will push premiers to open borders by December as they discuss how to roll out a vaccine by March

    Hopes are growing that state and territory borders will be down by Christmas as Scott Morrison meets premiers to discuss re-opening the country.

    The prime minister will push leaders to relax border restrictions at a National Cabinet meeting on Friday morning as Victoria goes a 14th day without any coronavirus cases. 

    The leaders will also discuss the logistics of vaccinating the nation after the Therapeutic Goods Administration granted Pfizer a provisional determination for its jab, meaning the approval process can be fast-tracked.

    The vaccine is expected to be approved in January with jabs given to 5million priority patients – including health workers and the elderly – in March.  

    Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said an implementation plan is ‘now being worked through and will be discussed with the premiers’. 

    It comes as Western Australia’s hard border comes down on Friday, allowing everyone to enter – although residents from NSW and VIC must home quarantine for 14 days on arrival.

    Queensland will review its ban on people from Victoria and Greater Sydney on 30 November. 

    Victorians will be able to enter NSW and the ACT from 23 November and Tasmania from 27 November.

    South Australia’s transition committee on Friday may set a date for the removal of the hard border closure with Victoria.

    What are the border restrictions?

    New South Wales: Will open to VIC on 23 November. Open to everywhere else

    Victoria: No restrictions

    Queensland: Exemption required if coming from VIC or Greater Sydney. Review on 30 November 

    South Australia: Exemption required if coming from VIC. 

    Tasmania: Will open to VIC on 27 November. Open to everywhere else 

    Western Australia: From 14 November everyone allowed but residents from NSW and VIC must self-quarantine

    ACT: Will open to VIC on 23 November. Open to everywhere else

    Northern Territory: People from Greater Melbourne must quarantine at their own expense. Open to everywhere else 

    Australia: Only people who have been in New Zealand for 14 days can enter without hotel quarantine

    That would allow people to travel to SA so long as they home quarantine for 14 days, and would offer the strong chance of all border measures being scrapped in time for Christmas.

    The key issue has been the fall in case numbers in Victoria in recent days, with no new infections for 13 days, but one case detected in SA this week could throw a spanner in the works.

    On Wednesday, health officials said an aged care worker who recently returned to Adelaide from Melbourne had tested positive for the virus.

    The woman in her 20s flew into Adelaide on Monday on a Jetstar flight and is in hotel quarantine.

    Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier said the woman tested positive for coronavirus in Victoria in August but had since been given the all-clear.

    Further tests are underway to determine if her case is an old infection and she is still shedding dead virus, or if it is a rare case of reinfection.

    Out of an abundance of caution the case was being considered infectious, Professor Spurrier said.

    Premier Steven Marshall said SA would be guided by health advice as to whether the case would delay plans to lift the harder border closure with Victoria.

    Mr Marshall said the Christmas timetable to remove all border restrictions remained a reasonable expectation, but the state would not take that step until it was safe to do so.

    ‘We need to see if this case sets us back at all,’ the premier said.
