"I will accept the health advice of Dr Young, and that is exactly what I did today," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"I kept my commitment. I'm honest with the people of Queensland."

Sydney residents wishing to enter Queensland will need to spend 14 days in a non-hotspot area for 14 days before they will be allowed in the state.

They will be required to make a border declaration stating they have not been in greater Sydney for two weeks.

People from regional NSW will not be allowed to enter Queensland if they have been in Sydney in the two weeks beforehand.

The premier defended her government's hardline approach when asked about its ongoing impact on the state's economy.

"In Victoria, the economy doesn't function when you're in lockdown," she said.

Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young declared that all 32 local government areas (LGAs) in Sydney should be viewed as "hot spots".

"There are 4.8 million people who live in those 32 LGAs in Sydney," she said.

"They are the risk, they are the ones moving around."

The 32 local government areas include Wollondilly and Camden, but not Wollongong, the Blue Mountains or the Central Coast.

The number of unlinked cases is motivating Queensland's decision to keep Sydneysiders out of the state.

"One unlinked case means there is a problem in that community," Dr Young said.

NSW Premier slams Queensland's 'extremely unfair' Sydney border closure

  NSW Premier slams Queensland's 'extremely unfair' Sydney border closure Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk won't be allowing Sydneysiders into her state as part of her eleciton-eve announcement, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has suggested. "I've not yet heard Premier Palaszczuk's announcement this morning. I understand she still won't let Sydneysiders come to Queensland," Ms Berejiklian told a press conference this morning."I understand that there might be an announcement for regional NSW.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian described the decision as very disappointing, while implying it was a political decision that may change tomorrow, following the Queensland state election.

"If I have my way, I wouldn't have any borders but with Victoria. It is extremely unfair and lacks common sense and logic to lump NSW in with Victoria," Ms Berejiklian said earlier.

"It is painful to me that New Zealanders can come and go from NSW but I can't go to Queensland, I can't go to WA and I don't think that's right."

NSW has officially recorded zero new cases of locally acquired coronavirus today, but a late-night diagnosis will be recorded in tomorrow's figures.
