On 10 April 2020, the State Coordinator made a Direction under the Emergency Management Act 2004 to limit entry into residential aged care facilities.
The Emergency Management (Residential Aged Care Facilities No 4) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 will come into effect at 12:01am on Friday 22 May 2020. It revokes the Emergency Management (Residential Aged Care Facilities No 3) (COVID-19) Direction 2020.
This Direction will remain in place until it is updated or removed.
The Direction outlines restrictions which impact a resident’s ability to leave residential aged care facilities, along with visitation rights to these facilities.
For more information about this Direction, see the SA Health website.
