Restrictions keep changing as governments try to limit the spread of coronavirus, but one thing will not change: the Victoria-NSW border will not close.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian reiterated her position on Friday morning.
"NSW and Victoria are on the same page on this. I don't see how shutting borders helps, in fact we should be putting our resources into community safety," she said.
"I think it would make things worse because people who rely on essential things on our borders should be able to move around when they have to.
"We don't encourage movement, but I don't want people to think they can't get basic and essential things because of restrictions we've put in place."

It is the first time the Premier has addressed the issued personally, since Albury mayor Kevin Mack mistakenly said it was "imminent" that the Victoria-NSW border would close.
Albury MP Justin Clancy corrected the record on Tuesday on behalf of the government.
Murray River Police Superintendent Paul Smith also reinforced that the border would stay open at a press conference on Friday.
"We're getting a lot of calls to our police stations on a lock-down of the NSW-Victorian border, there is no intention at this time to do that," he said.
"We live in border communities, we are one community, be it business, or policing, but i would encourage and strongly encourage that all non-essential travel should stop.
"That means not going away for the weekend to another town, it means cancelling your planned Easter holidays, it means staying at home.
"If you don't need to be out, don't be out."
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has also said he will not close the border.
"The Victorian Premier and I are on the same page on that, both of us want to keep our borders open and NSW certainly will," Ms Berejiklian said.
"I feel the need to make sure people don't have any additional stress they don't need."
She also called on those who live with someone elderly or vulnerable to make sure they did not leave the house this weekend.
"In the case of my parents, I haven't let them out of the home and I won't, but we're making sure they have what they need," she said.
"Please do the same for your loved ones."
