Queensland considers ‘more plausible’ goal for border reopening

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.”
