Coronavirus Australia live news: Victoria in stage 3 shutdown as Tasmania and ACT record first deaths – latest update

This morning I told my cabinet I wanted even tougher border controls, and they have agreed.

Our actions so far have stem the flow of interstate arrivals to that Territory, and I want to stop that flow.

From midnight on Wednesday, people entering the Territory from interstate, including Territorians returning home, will be required to spend 14 days in forced quarantine, not self quarantine.

The rule that applies to overseas arrivals will now apply to all arrivals.

So that means if you come from Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, from anywhere, you will be directed straight to a hotel that is secured by us and guarded by us and you will stay in your room for 14 days.

From midnight on Friday, if you still insist on coming to the Territory, whether from overseas or interstate, you will go into forced quarantine, but we will not be paying the bill.

You will be made to stay where we tell you to stay, but you will pay for it, not us. We have given you enough notice.

If you are starting to think I don’t want you here, you are right.

Do not come here, we do not want you here. Sorry, but not right now.

When all of this is over, please come to the Territory. It’s the greatest place on earth, and we would be happy to have you, but not right now.
