NSW pulls trigger
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has confirmed the state will conduct a new home isolation trial for returned travellers that will see people only serve seven days of quarantine.
The pilot will involve at least 100 fully vaccinated people and if it meets key objectives, will replace NSW’s costly hotel quarantine system altogether.
“We want to be able to open up in Sydney and NSW as quickly as possible, so this is a really crucial step,” NSW Tourism Minister Stuart Ayres said.
Qantas staff are reportedly among those flagged to take part in the home isolation trial.
