Queensland will open it borders to Canberrans and people from other states on July 10, but has strengthened its block on Victorians.
From noon this Friday, July 3, anyone travelling from Victoria to Queensland will have to go into two weeks' hotel quarantine and pay for it themselves. The new rule also applies to returning Queenslanders.
To be allowed into Queensland, Canberrans and people from other states than Victoria will have to declare they haven't been to Victoria for two weeks, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on Tuesday.
Not telling the truth on the declaration attracts a fine of up to $4000.
Victoria recorded 64 new cases to lunchtime on Tuesday, after recording 75 new cases the day before, and 49 the day before that.
South Australia has now cancelled its plans to reopen its border on July 20, as a result of the Victorian escalation.
Authorities there say they will meet on Friday to consider an exception for people from the ACT and NSW, and are likely to set a date for them to be allowed in.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has pushed hard for states to reopen borders, but Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles said if the state had opened its borders earlier, as urged, the Victorian outbreak would already have spread to Queensland.
Ms Palaszczuk said she was sick of the "border wars".
"I think a national leader should have been able to bring all of the states and territories together. Frankly, I'm a bit sick that Queensland has been singled out," she said. "I've been silent for a long time and I will not be silenced for standing up for what I believe to be right."
She was concerned that NSW residents would travel to Victoria and from there to Queensland in the school holidays. They would not be allowed in without the self-paid quarantine.
"Can I just urge all Queenslanders, this is very serious, please do not go to Victoria," she said.
Queensland has also opened up its businesses internally from this Friday, including casinos, the pokies, pubs and sport, including stadiums. Queensland is also allowing one person for every two square metres in smaller venues, instead of one person for four square metres. This change is yet to be made in Canberra but is expected soon.
