Tears of joy, long embraces and smiling faces were just some of the scenes at Adelaide airport as families were reunited for the first time in months.  Flights from Sydney and Melbourne touched down this morning [[November 23]] as South Australia's borders to New South Wales, the A-C-T and Victoria begin to reopen.

In the Top End, the Northern Territory has recorded three new locally acquired cases of COVID-19, one of which is an infant from Robinson River who has been taken to hospital.  All of those infected are close contacts of known cases, bringing the cluster to 40.

Meanwhile in federal parliament Independent Tasmanian M-P Jacqui Lambie has hit out against One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson's bill to get rid of vaccine mandates. It was voted down on Monday, but did receive the support of five M-Ps.
