South Australia has held off its decision to reopen its state borders with New South Wales despite strong hints that the change would be pushed through today.

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens has said that he’s not yet satisfied that a decision can be made at this point.

“We’ve had a fairly detailed conversation about the issues around ACT and New South Wales, I’ve got a few other things I need to take on board in terms of advice,” Commissioner Stevens told the media this morning.

However, Commissioner Stevens said that we can expect a decision to be made within the coming days.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to make a decision in the next day or two.”

The state’s transition committee met today, considering health, social and economic issues surrounding reopening the state borders.

New South Wales only recorded 7 new cases over the last 24 hours, while the ACT currently has zero active cases within the territory.
