South Australia has confirmed its third coronavirus death, bringing the nation's death toll to 51. SA Health said the 76-year-old man contracted COVID-19 in the Barossa Valley.

Queensland has recorded just 10 new coronavirus cases overnight, taking the state’s total to 953.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queenslanders were doing a good job but flagged tougher travel restrictions would come into force.

More than 3,000 patients were tested yesterday with only 10 returning positive results. Overall, 66,700 tests have been done since the pandemic began.

However, residents who travel to a declared hotspot in NSW will need to quarantine for 14 days when they return.

The State Government also announced all Queensland residents will require a border pass when returning back into the state.

Ms Palaszczuk said now was not the time to go into NSW.

“We are not ruling out further measures into the future,” she said.

“Stay in your state.

“Stay in your region as much as possible.

“Let’s not put all of our good work at risk.”
