Queensland will open to Adelaide from this Saturday as long as there are no unlinked COVID-19 cases in the next five days.

Making the announcement this afternoon, Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said people travelling from Adelaide to Queensland would not have to quarantine from 1am December 12.

She said it was important for people to remember to get tested if they had symptoms and register at venues as the state welcomed more visitors.

“This is absolutely critical, the more our state opens up nationally, the more we need to be vigilant to ensure that we can contact trace if there is a case that is identified in the community,” she said.

Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said that by Saturday, 28 days would have passed since the first case in the Parafield cluster.

“If there are no additional cases between now and Saturday morning that are unable to be linked to that outbreak, then Queensland will no longer require quarantine of anyone travelling from those 20 local government authority areas in Adelaide,” she said.
