Stranded Victorians return from Sydney as tourism industry warned international border could be shut all year. Follow latest updates
Just back on Victorian premier Daniel Andrews and the Australian Open: he made mention that some of the positive tests recorded earlier this week have been reclassified as “shedding” of the virus.
This could mean that if the flights those people were on are now declared safe, some players could be released from isolation, allowing them to train outside and have contact with a coach/trainer. We’re expecting more detail on these reclassified cases later.
Scott Morrison has begun his tour of Queensland today, and will visit Bunginderry station in Quilpie.
From Longreach, Morrison spoke to outgoing US vice-president Mike Pence – they thanked each other for Australia and the US’s partnership particularly in the Indo-Pacific, and agreed there was no more important time for a strong alliance.
Guardian Australia understands Morrison has not spoken to Donald Trump since before the election and has no plans to.
