If Australia wants to “rejoin the world” and open up the country, a system with hotel quarantine “just won’t work”, says NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet, as he discusses the future of travel to the country with Sky News Australia.
Mr Perrottet told Sky News host Sharri Markson his government was “looking at this at the moment,” with Stuart Ayres set to bring a paper to the government’s sub-committee shortly.
“We do need to move away from the hotel quarantine system, it doesn’t make much sense as the Prime Minister has said, that if you’re double vaccinated and you’re returning Australian that you need to be up in a hotel for two weeks,” Mr Perrottet said.
“If we can move that date forward from towards the back end of the year into November or earlier, I think that’s going to make a lot more sense.
“We’re a global city, we want to rejoin the world, we want to open up our country and the best way to do that is not have a situation where people are stuck in a hotel for two weeks, it just won’t work.”
