Tough new border restrictions barring some Tasmanians from entering Queensland

Queensland has imposed tough border restrictions that will force travellers from parts of Tasmania to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

On Saturday, chief health officer Jeannette Young announced the border changes would come into effect from 1am on Sunday.

The new restrictions will apply to Tasmanians arriving from 12 local government areas in Hobart and the state’s south.

Dr Young said any Queenslanders who had already arrived or were arriving before tomorrow would need to monitor for symptoms and seek immediate testing if they present.

The border measures were introduced as parts of Tasmania endure a snap three-day lockdown, caused by an infected NSW man who entered the state despite being denied entry and leaving hotel quarantine to visit friends.

More to come.
