So those going into quarantine need to be transported into quarantine hotels somehow. But quarantine bus drivers need to be treated more like medical staff and it would be a good idea if the driver's air circulation were separated from that of the passengers.
There should be a plastic film cover wrapped around the seats that is replaced between trips.

Its fairly easy.

Use buses with mid length doors and limit the passengers from seating in the front row.

No need for plastic, just a quick spray with disinfectant.

However the key part is ensuring passengers flying to Australia are required to present a negative PCR test prior to boarding and this would eliminate most of the risk. Yes some will still get through due to contact between testing and flying, but 85-95% of the risk is eliminated.

However additionally, especially for the 12h flights it is possible to test people as they board the flight and have the results available by the time the plane lands. While it doesn't prevent the infected from boarding you certainly know and on arrival a higher level of biosecurity is applied. Meanwhile the rest of the flights can have a lower level of biosecurity and those reduce the hotel stay duration and cost as well as enable an increased number of passengers to return home.

Maybe an interim thing but separating the driver's air circulation and all seats being available is better for capacity.

This is the point made by Steven Marshall in a request to national cabinet.

I'm not sure what this is about, the rest of the flights?

There is room for improvement to quarantine in all states and any improvement could save us from another lockdown.

The bus drivers are ok.

They need to provide a window of up to 96h (depending on country) prior boarding for practicality. However as the number of flights to Australia is limited from a limited number of destinations they should testing as people board the plane.

By the time the plane lands or shortly after, the results will be known.

If you are vax'ed and you have two negative PCR's in a row and no one else on the plane is +'ve, you are free to go, but must undertake another PCR around day 4.

If you are not Vax'ed then into a hotel for 5 - 7 days with a 3rd PCR near the end for release.
