There have been no new cases of COVID-19 today. There have been a total of 443 cases reported in SA.

There are now no active cases in SA and 439 people have been cleared of COVID-19.

There have been four reported deaths in SA from COVID-19. There have been more than 167,500 tests undertaken in SA.
Everyone must continue to follow measures that will help stop the spread. Practice good hygiene, keep 1.5 metres distance from others and stay at home if you are unwell.

People experiencing any of the following symptoms (even if mild) should be tested for COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills (in the absence of an alternative illness that explains these symptoms)
  • An acute respiratory infection e.g. symptoms of cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath
  • Loss of smell or alteration in the sense of taste

Everyone who has been in Victoria in the past 14 days and has any symptoms (even if mild), or have been in contact with someone with symptoms, should get tested.

A hard border closure is now in effect between SA and Victoria and all SA residents and essential travellers approved to enter SA will be required to quarantine for 14 days, or perform their essential duties under strict guidelines.

Step 3 of the SA roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions is underway. More information on the easing of restrictions is available at SA.GOV.AU.

Keep up the good work SA and let’s not undo all the good.
