COVID UPDATE - Thursday May 27
VICTORIA GOING INTO LOCKDOWN / TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
All of Victoria will be going into a 7-day lockdown from 11.59pm tonight. The number of cases there linked to the SA quarantine breach is now 26, up 12 from last night. The NSW border to Victoria remains open at this stage, but the message is simple, don't go there. Travel restrictions may be announced later today.
If you've been in Victoria recently you should check the list of exposure sites and take the appropriate action. You can check those sites here
In better news, no cases were recorded in NSW over the past 24 hours - no community transmission and no cases among returned overseas travellers.
It's now been 294 days since we had a case of community transmission in the Hunter-New England Health District.
