South Australia will open its border to New South Wales from midnight on Wednesday.
Premier Steven Marshall made the announcement following the state’s Transition Committee meeting on Tuesday – despite concerns a Sydney taxi driver may have spread coronavirus across the city.
‘They (the committee) were furnished with all necessary information from NSW to make the decision,’ he said.
‘This will be massive relief for people dislocated from family, friends and business opportunities. we know this has been a massive burden on the business community, families and individuals but we did this to keep people safe.’
NSW Health is urgently contacting anyone who took trips with a Silver Service taxi driver who tested positive on Saturday and worked in Sydney’s west and southwest.
Anyone who rode in his taxi between September 8 and 18 should monitor for symptoms, isolate for 14 days and get tested for coronavirus.
