Western Australia will move to a controlled border with Victoria from Monday.
It means people will be able to enter the state without needing a special exemption but they will still be required to self-quarantine for a fortnight and get a COVID-19 test before leaving quarantine.
The decision was made at an emergency meeting this afternoon.
Victoria will now be classified as a “low-risk” state after it went nine days with no local cases of the virus.
The WA Government will still look for 28 consecutive days of no community cases in Victoria before it will consider allowing quarantine-free travel.
More to come.
