Families will be deterred from travelling overseas for a “while yet,” according to Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell.
Mr Clennell said Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis whilst on a trip to the UK and US would cause a lot of families to think twice about taking an international holiday, as entrance to Australia without a negative COVID-19 test is not allowed.
“I think the other thing it shows, is why a lot of us are a bit reluctant to take an overseas holiday at the moment,” Mr Clennell said.
“If you took your family overseas at the moment, you’d be stuck there wouldn’t you?
“You’d have to test negative to come back so, I think that’s going to deter families in particular from travelling overseas for a while yet.”
