The Sunshine State is expected to announce travel restrictions after a coronavirus cluster in Adelaide was revealed.
The Sunshine State will join Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania to restrict access from South Australia following the outbreak in the city’s northern suburbs.
WA Premier Mark McGowan was the first to pull the trigger on Sunday night, announcing those who entered from SA will be required to go into 14-day quarantine and leaving travellers stranded at the airport.

On Monday morning, NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner shut the borders “effective immediately”, as did Tasmania Premier Peter Gutwein.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk sent out a warning on Monday morning ahead of a meeting with health authorities.
“Anyone about to leave Adelaide should be advised we are assessing the COVID-19 outbreak and may place restrictions on travel, including mandatory quarantine on arrivals,” she tweeted.
A decision is expected on the borders by lunchtime.
