“Each one of these requirements does require you to have a permit though, so there’s a little bit to do, it’s going to be interesting to see how they roll that out.
“If we had a national response, like the traffic light system, where all the rules are all the same … that would make a lot of sense.”
Professor Thompson said it was “really, really hard” to understand border rules when different state and federal leaders waged debate around the issue and suddenly instated new closures.
But he said for now, the “detail isn’t entirely clear” about how the Victorian government would set thresholds for which zone is which.
“The problem is when the rules get changed – if you’re in a spot that was green and it’s gone to yellow – that’s when it gets tricky,” Professor Thompson said.
“If you’re sitting in Sydney and it’s been nice and green, and you’re about to jump on the plane and it turns yellow, that would be slightly annoying.
“If there’s people out there who have a virus and are walking around in the community, then they can transmit it to someone else. So we need to know where they are and where the hotspots are.”
