‘Don’t go to Sydney’: Victoria issues warning after Covid outbreak grows


Victoria’s health minister, Martin Foley, has advised against travel to and from Sydney as the New South Wales government grapples with a rapidly evolving Covid-19 outbreak. Foley says the growing cluster on Sydney’s northern beaches means Victorians should not be going there and face risks if they try to get home. ‘Don’t come from Sydney if you’re planning to come to Melbourne,’ he says. ‘Don’t go to Sydney if you’re planning to go to Sydney. It won’t be a holiday. It won’t be a Christmas.’
