Wollondilly residents will be banned from entering Queensland due to the threat of COVID19.

The shire is one of about 35 LGA' s across the greater Sydney area which have been listed as hotspots.

The ban comes into effect from 1am Saturday.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has raised concerns about the increasing amount of community transmission spreading across a wider area of Sydney.

We asked Wollondilly Mayor about his thoughts regarding the ban.

He says he's quite surprised by the decision and will be writing to the Queensland Premier to explain how they're not part of metro Sydney.
