Daniel Andrews REFUSES to let unvaccinated Australian Open players into Victoria

Australian Open in CHAOS as Daniel Andrews REFUSES to let unvaccinated players compete – as he overrules the PM’s claim they could quarantine

  • Andrews said VIC would not be applying for exemptions for unvaxxed players
  • Scott Morrison had earlier said the players could come into Aus and quarantine 

The Australian Open has been thrown into chaos after Prime Minister Scott Morrison opened the door to unvaccinated athletes entering the country – until Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews quickly objected. 

‘What I want to make very clear is that the state of Victoria will not be applying for any exemptions for unvaccinated players,’ the Victorian premier said on Wednesday.

His comments come after Scott Morrison said tennis players who have not been jabbed would be allowed into the country for the competition provided they apply for a skilled worker travel exemption and undergo 14-day quarantine. 

‘They’ll have to quarantine for two weeks, just in the same way a skilled worker who has come in to fix a boiler … or something like that, they can get exemptions to do that,’ he told 2GB earlier on Wednesday. 

‘We’ve been providing exemptions for workers to come in to do these types of things all the way through the pandemic.’ 

It is now unclear whether or not tennis stars who aren’t vaccinated will be allowed to quarantine of if they will be allowed into the state at all. 

More to come.
