When the Prime Minister makes recommendations to the states about restriction guidelines relating to COVID-19, each state must then consider how those recommendations will be applied. They are not enforceable in South Australia until the State Coordinator, Commissioner Grant Stevens, enacts a Direction.

The South Australian Directions apply to everyone living in, and entering, South Australia.

In March 2020, the State Coordinator made a Direction under the Emergency Management Act 2004 to limit business activities.

The Emergency Management (Non-Essential Business and Other Activities No 6) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 has been revoked and replaced by the Emergency Management (Non-Essential Business and Other Activities No 7) (COVID-19) Direction 2020.

This came into effect at 5:30 pm Friday 22 May 2020.

This Direction is the latest to be issued and will remain current until it is updated or removed.
