Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus. The virus can spread from person to person. Symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, or loss or taste or smell.

The current COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria is concerning and measures are being taken to protect South Australians from the increased risk caused as a result of this situation.

Our Chief Public Health Officer, Professor Nicola Spurrier, answers a number of questions South Australians may have.



We can all help stop the spread:

  • Get tested if you have symptoms (even if mild).
  • Practise good hygiene.
  • Download the COVIDSafe app.
  • Keep 1.5 metres distance from others wherever, whenever possible.

The roadmap outlines how COVID-19 restrictions will be eased in our state, so our community can return to doing the things they enjoy in a safe and measured way.
