South Australian health authorities have reinstated the 70km border travel corridor with Victoria, as the state eases additional COVID-19 restrictions.
Under the new rules, the border travel corridor will be extended back out to 70km, after it was reduced to 30km following the Mount Gambier positive case.
Residents in towns such as Nhill, Edenhope and Casterton will now be able to travel across the border into South Australia.
Weekly testing will still be required for cross border community members looking to travel into the state, excluding anyone under the age of 12.
Cross border community members will also be required to show proof of a first vaccine dose by October 18 to gain access across the border.
The South Australian border communities of Mount Gambier, District Council of Grant and Wattle Range Council have also seen an easing of restrictions, inline with the stage one restrictions affecting the rest of the South Australia.
