SA home gathering limit lifts to 20 from Saturday, borders ease slightly


South Australia has eased some local and border COVID-19 restrictions, but there are no changes to the closed border arrangements with NSW, Victoria and the ACT.


The cap on home gatherings in SA will also rise from 10 to 20 from Saturday and consumption of food and drink while standing will be allowed at private gatherings.


South Australia has also eased some COVID-19 border restrictions, making it easier for people to travel from Queensland and the Northern Territory.


The state's transition committee met on Friday, opening the border to the Northern Territory, except for people coming from Katherine. This follows the NT lifting their snap three-day lockdown on Darwin and Katherine.


The committee also decided to allow people to travel from regional Queensland, however, those from the state's southeast, including Brisbane, will still need to get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result.


The committee has not made any changes to the closed border arrangements with NSW, Victoria and the ACT.
