Omicrom arrived first

The Commonwealth has closed the borders to international arrivals for a fortnight, but the NSW Gov and unis plan for 250 international students to fly into Sydney next week will go ahead

What has changed is what will happen when they clear immigration. Fully vaccinated or not, the state has changed the rules so they will have now have to quarantine for 72 hours. Unless of course the state and/or Commonwealth governments change the rules again.

International students who want to come back will surely be wondering if it is worth the risk.  As federal health minister Greg Hunt said yesterday, “the national plan is always under constant review at this point in time.”
