* Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has put her historic election win down to her COVID-19 response allowing voters to maintain their lifestyles.

* NSW again recorded only a handful of new cases, only days after the Queensland government declared Sydney was still a hotspot.

* The Morrison government has launched a mental health campaign to assist Australians through the pandemic.

* Western Australia recorded one new case - a returned overseas traveller in hotel quarantine - as it prepares to unwind its hard borders.
