Forget what Scott Morrison is saying: WA ready to ease its hard border rules from Saturday

After 222 days of strict border policy, WA Premier Mark McGowan has finally announced that the state is ready to relax its hard border controls from midnight tonight.

The Premier says we can expect to see an almost immediate influx of travellers to Western Australia, hence more police have been deployed to check flight bookings and road checkpoints.

Mr McGowan estimated that some 2,000 passengers would make their way into WA this weekend alone, with all passenger having to complete an online test for a C2G pass.

People from “low risk” jurisdictions – including Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, the ACT and the Northern Territory – will be able to visit the west without quarantining

.NSW and Victorian residents will have to be quarantined for 14 days.

“As we look around the world, we know COVID-19 is circling Australia, and therefore we cannot be complacent,” Mr McGowan said.

Experts fear that a new arrival with Covid-19 could spark a second wave, and that the state is not equipped to handle it.
