South Australian health authorities have not changed their advice or restrictions on those travelling to and from New South Wales.

Yesterday, New South Wales recorded more new cases of COVID-19 than Victoria, with 11 cases of community transmission confirmed in the state.

However, under current border rules, people are permitted to enter SA from NSW without being subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Local health authorities are urging South Aussies to keep an eye on the situation in NSW if they are travelling.

New South Wales currently has 31 active cases of the virus throughout the state.

Meanwhile, only those who have been granted a travel exemption from SA Health are permitted to enter SA from Victoria.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejikilian says that authorities are now more concerned than they have been for some time.

“Our state is on the verge of being where it was when we had the first seeding incident from Victoria,” Ms Berejiklian told reporters yesterday.

The South Australian state government is encouraging locals to travel in the state instead of crossing borders with a generous travel voucher scheme.

From 9am, locals can get a $100 accommodation voucher for hotels in the city and $50 for staying in regional centres.
