Contact tracing - coronavirus (COVID-19)
SA Health is asking all travellers returning from the Greater Brisbane or Ipswich areas to closely watch for COVID-19 symptoms on their return to South Australia and to get tested for COVID-19 if any symptoms develop, even if very mild.
Anyone in South Australia who has visited any of the venues posted by Queensland Health during the times and dates listed is requested to self-isolate for 14 days from the date they attended the venue. A list of the venues can be found at Queensland Government Contact tracing.
Travellers returning from the Greater Brisbane and Ipswich areas should not attend nursing or disability homes or visit vulnerable people for 14 days from their return.
This includes aged and disability care workers, who should have a negative COVID-19 test result before returning to work.
SA Health is encouraging travellers to rethink their travel plans to Queensland where possible as quarantine requirements may change depending on the situation.
