“This means that we are doubling down on limiting any potential spread of the virus from Victoria,” Mr Cook said.
Further backing WA’s hard border stance and with the introduction of the even tighter restrictions on Victorian travellers Mr Cook said 29,000 travel exemptions had been cancelled for those seeking to enter WA from Victoria.
