COVID-19: International Travel
That this House:
(1) recognises the economic and personal impact of state government international arrival caps, including;
(a) economic costs of skilled visa workers and international students; and
(b) personal and mental health costs for stranded Australian citizens; and
(2) urges state governments to review their caps on a weekly basis and initiate training of quarantine staff, so that industry-led, large-scale quarantine arrangements can be in place before the next calendar year.
