Gold Coast’s border bubble set to be adjusted again

Queensland officials are expected to reduce the border bubble again today after an area of northern New South Wales went into lockdown overnight.

The Kyogle area, west of Byron Bay, has been forced into another snap lockdown as coronavirus cases there continue to grow.

The decision was made yesterday, with the stay at home orders coming into effect at midnight.


It will stay in lockdown until October 11, when the vaccination rules come into place for businesses.

It’ll likely mean that the region is booted from the Queensland border bubble today, meaning residents can only cross into the Sunshine State for extremely essential reasons.

The Byron Bay and Tweed areas have so far avoided another lockdown, despite a couple of new cases and positive sewerage results in the last couple of days.

There have also been reports of a fresh case in Cabarita, but authorities are yet to confirm it.

More information is expected later this morning.
