SA drops quarantine for Vic travellers
South Australia has opened its border to Victoria, clearing the way for people to cross the state line without needing to quarantine.
The change comes as SA also reduces some local coronavirus restrictions on Tuesday that were imposed because of the latest cluster of COVID-19 cases in Adelaide.
Under the new rules, patron caps for pubs and restaurants will be scrapped provided venues are using the new QR check-in codes, although the rule of one person to every four square metres will continue to apply.
The density requirement will be reduced to one person to every two square metres for any outdoor activities or venues where stand-up consumption will also be allowed.
Limits on funerals will be raised to 150, with the same number of people already allowed at weddings and other private events.
Home gatherings will continue to be restricted to 10 people.
Cinemas and theatres will be allowed to operate at up to 50 per cent capacity while gyms and swimming centres can also open.
No new cases were added to the Parafield cluster on Monday, which stands at 33, with only 14 of those still considered active infections.
About 1300 people remain in quarantine or home isolation.
With the scrapping the Victorian border rules, SA is now open to travellers from every state and territory as well as those from New Zealand.
