The border closure applies to seven Sydney Local Government Areas (LGAs) from 1am tomorrow, including: City of Sydney, Woolhara, Bayside, Canada Bay, Inner West, Randwick and Waverley.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the border measures were necessary as Sydney's Bondi coronavirus cluster grew to 21 cases yesterday.

Victoria first declared a large chunk of Sydney a red zone last night, meaning non-Victorian residents are banned from entering the state and returning residents will need to apply for a permit quarantine at home for two weeks.

Exposure sites

A list of exposure sites continues to grow, with a supermarket, a restaurant and a Trans-Tasman flight among the latest in Sydney.

The flights are part of NSW Health's latest alert linked to the state's current COVID-19 outbreak, which grew by 10 cases on Tuesday. This takes the Bondi cluster to 21 cases.
