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.

A direction is in place regarding traffic entering South Australia.

All travellers coming to South Australia are required to complete a Cross-Border Travel Registration.

See Travel restrictions for more information on how this Direction is applied.
