South Australia has reduced the size of its border bubbles with NSW and Victoria after both states recorded flare-ups of coronavirus.
The new community cases revealed over the weekend included one in the city of Mildura
in northwest Victoria on that state’s border with NSW.
South Australia Police said the new border rules came into place one minute after midnight on Monday. The full set of new rules is published on the force’s website.
People who have been to Mildura Local Government Area since July 11 will be required to quarantine for a fortnight after arriving in South Australia and will have to get tested for Covid-19 on days one, five and 13.

For people living in the area near the border with Victoria, the new rules are:
People who have been in the Riverland area should get tested if they have any symptoms, and people are discouraged from travelling in and out of that area.
Bubble residents should have an approved cross border travel registration form, SA Police said.
Those who don’t already have one are advised to apply for one at least seven days before travelling, as the amount of new applications are expected to increase.
SA residents are advised to keep track of other coronavirus restrictions that are already in place and haven’t changed.
