TAMWORTH residents will be able to visit Queensland from Tuesday next week, that state's government has announced.
The change, made on the eve of Queensland's impending state election, means that NSW's regional and rural residents will be able to enjoy the warmer weather north of the border from November 3.
Sydney residents are still restricted from entering the northern state.
Queensland's chief health officer Dr Jeanette Young said continuing cases without identifiable sources in southwestern Sydney meant that there were carriers in the community NSW health authorities were yet to find.
She said that visitors from outside Sydney could still depart to Queensland via the state capital's airport, but would need to travel to the aviation hub without stopping in the greater metropolitan area.
NSW reported no new cases of locally transmitted COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm Thursday.
Six cases were reported in overseas travellers in hotel quarantine, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 4,228.
More to come.
