Queensland will shut its borders from midday on Tuesday to residents of two Sydney suburbs after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk declared them coronavirus hot spots.
The local government areas of Liverpool and Campbelltown will be barred from freely crossing the border, along with all of Victoria.
Anyone who has been in those areas in the past 14 days will need to enter hotel quarantine after entering the state.

“Popular pit stop for people travelling the highway, especially truckies”
The call comes after an outbreak of coronavirus cases at the Crossroads Hotel in Casula NSW, which has led to 21 cases so far, 11 of those being close contacts of people who attended the pub.
Ms Palaszczuk said the hotel is a “popular pit stop for people travelling the highway, especially truckies”.
“We’re asking any Queenslanders who visited there between July 3 and July 10 to immediately self-isolate and arrange a COVID-19 test as soon as possible.”
So far, 18 Queenslanders who visited the Crossroads have been tested and are self isolating.
