Sumary of State vows to reopen to NSW at 80 per cent:
- South Australia’s premier has confirmed he will move to abolish state lockdowns when vaccination rates hit 80 per cent – expected to be before Christmas.
- The South Australian Premier has promised his residents they will be reunited with their families in Covid-locked down jurisdictions for Christmas, provided the state meets a key vaccination target.
- Steven Marshall confirmed to Sky News on Sunday that his state remained committed to the national plan, and that the borders would reopen to NSW, Victoria and the ACT once SA reached 80 per cent double dose vaccination rates.
- Based on its current trajectory, the state should hit the double dose “well before Christmas”.
- Mr Marshall’s commitment is markedly different from the Premiers of Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania, who refuse to be drawn on what will trigger them to reopen their borders.
