Just over a month after reopening the border with Victoria, the NSW Premier has labelled the hard border closure as not a 'good use of resources'.
Gladys Berejiklian was speaking of Victoria's decision to close the border to NSW after coronavirus cases begun to grow in the southern state.
"While I don't criticise other state governments for their decisions, at times I feel they are jumping too soon," she said during her morning press conference.
"No matter how tight your borders are you are going to have exemptions with travellers being through different parts of the country.
"When you have 55 potential crossings that is always going to happen.

"When you do have a border closure, you put so many resources in to a concentrated activity that stops you from putting them elsewhere.
"I don't think closing the border is a good use of resources.
"I think we are better to ask the community to come forward and get testing."
Ms Berejiklian said the NSW government wasn't thinking of re-closing the border with Victoria at this time.
