Internet reacts hilariously to Australia’s internal borders opening up

Oct 19, 2021

State leaders are slowly releasing information about how their states will be reopening.

Today, Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan released an update on border control, declaring Queensland as a “very low risk” destination, sharing that Queenslanders would now be allowed to enter the state and visit without quarantining.

McGowan’s announcement lead to some concern about his plan for reopening to the rest of Australia.

This news comes just 24 hours after Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced Queensland’s roadmap for reopening to the rest of the country, and then to international arrivals.

However, some Twitter users noted that Queensland’s plan only seems to leave room for those who are vaccinated against Covid-19.
Others have questions.

Many people are suspicious of the Queensland Government, based on the haste they’ve previously shown in locking down and closing the borders to other states.

Across the rest of the country, hilarious memes were made about Australia finally making its way out of the Covid-19 era, laden with lockdowns and closed borders.
