Commenting on the story: SA Health boss casts doubt over Christmas border opening plans
South Australians have generally been diligent following SA Health orders to minimise Covid. However, there has been a lack of urgency in achieving a vaccination rate that will enable South Australians to travel interstate or reunite with interstate relatives or friends etc.
Many will resent prolonged restriction and believe that the regime is failing us.
Now that everyone has had the opportunity to vaccinate, the borders should open. Travel should be allowed, albeit with a high rate of testing and quarantine only for proven cases and unvaccinated contacts. – Jack Urlwin
We need clarity and not more mixed messages.
Families are being torn apart, the mental health impact is horrendous and in the meantime we have a health system that has had 18 months to prepare its Covid response telling us it’s ill-prepared to deal with opening our borders.
Enough. We want to be with our loved ones for Christmas. The northern hemisphere has opened up to the world, people taking vacations, celebrating with their families and they’re bemused at Australia which they once thought was ahead of the game.
Law-abiding and compliant Australians are feeling duped by a health system that regardless of any level of funding has failed to keep at pace and a federated system of government which provides conflicting diametrically opposed messages each day depending on the political spin each state government wants to promote. – Karel Locher
Why are we just now looking to ramp up hospital abilities, Covid has been here since March 2020. – Alan Johns

Cregan is to be congratulated for deciding to go it alone. The policies of both this government and the former Labor government with respect to population growth in the Hills has been a disgrace. – John Tons
