New South Wales is accepting 750 per week, just over 100 per day.
Queensland is accepting 650 per week.
Victoria is accepting 500 per week.
Western Australia is accepting 265 per week.
South Australia is accepting 265 per week.
Tasmania is not accepting any arrivals.
Australian Capital Territory is not accepting any arrivals.
Northern Territory is not accepting any commercial arrivals, but is accommodating the return of Australians on Government facilitated commercial services. (Repatriation Flights). These arrivals are quarantined at the Howard Springs Quarantine Facility.
Repatriation flights are arranged to repatriate Australians and Permanent Residents that are trying to return home.
Many of these Australians, and Permanent Residents, have been unable to return home due to the limitation on flights available.
