Announcement on QLD borders expected around lunchtime today
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk will announce today when the next easing of restrictions will be triggered and possibly when the borders, which have been closed since March, will reopen. The state is divided as to if we should open or keep closed, but tourism operators are losing $53 million a day as they await a decision. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk will meet with the state's Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young this morning, who will make her recommendations, before a meeting with Cabinet. An announcement is likely to be made around lunchtime.
