Queensland considers ‘more plausible’ goal for border reopening
Queensland Health is reportedly considering lowering the bar for COVID-19 transmission to reopen the border with NSW.

Queensland Tourism Industry Council CEO Daniel Gschwind told Scott Emerson halving the threshold to one ‘incubation period’, in line with South Australia’s requirement, would be “a little bit more plausible”.
“Ultimately, all those triggers are arbitrary.
“There’s constant movement and change … it is just something that needs to be discussed.”
