South Australians living across the border in low-risk areas of regional Victoria could soon be permitted to travel back to SA.

The news comes following the release of Monday’s COVID-19 stats, in which only five new cases of the virus were confirmed across the state.

The hard border with Victoria was introduced on July 8, with only essential workers and those granted exemptions allowed to enter South Australia from over the border.

Under the mooted changes those entering the state from Victoria would still be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

The state’s transition committee will meet again on Friday after today’s meeting was cancelled.

The committee is set to debate SA’s border restrictions along with rules affecting the hospitality industry.

Currently, there are 359 active cases of COVID-19 across Victoria.
