New South Wales As of today, there is a new border pass required for those entering into NSW as a critical service worker (road transport and logistics). Please note, previous passes will expire at midnight tonight, so update your pass immediately.
From Friday 17th July - Freight is no longer allowed into NT if a Carrier has been in a declared hotspot (ie, the entire state of VIC and new NSW Hotspots). All exemptions will be revoked from 17th July IF a Carrier has been in a hotspot within the last 14 days. Read more from NT Gov and NHVR
Currently (10:15am, 14th July), freight is exempt even from declared coronavirus hotspots. A border pass is required and must be renewed every 7 days. Read more from QLD Gov, NHVR and apply for a border pass. (Updated 15th July, 12pm) - QLD is accepting freight from NSW Hotspots (Campbelltown and Liverpool, see more here) but Carriers must do the following:
Keep records of close contacts for 14 days
Agree to be tested if symptoms develop
Self-isolate in truck or accommodation when not working
More info to come as information develops...
