Brickbat: Maybe Next Year


Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said foreign tourists won't be allowed back into the country until 2022 at the earliest. The country won't fully reopen its borders until at least 80 percent of the population 16 and older is fully vaccinated for COVID-19. And then, Morrison said, it will give priority to skilled workers and students. On the bright side, Morrison said he will allow Australian citizens and residents to travel overseas for the first time since March 2020. But only if they are fully vaccinated.
