Queensland’s eight-day border bubble bursts landing hospital staff in strife
Cross-border travel has been suspended in the Tweed region as NSW residents enter their first day of lockdown.
A person from Sydney travelled to the area while infectious with coronavirus, sparking the seven-day lockdown.
Shadow minister for health Ros Bates told Mark Levy the bubble was open for essential travel for just eight days.
“That bubble down in Tweed and Coolangatta is not only an economic bubble.
“There’s families on one side of the border, there’s people who can’t get to work, there are nurses from Tweed Heads who can’t get to work at John Flynn, there are nurses who live in Coolangatta who can’t get to work in Tweed.”
