Two new COVID-19 cases

There have been two new COVID-19 cases in South Australia today. Both cases, a man and woman in their 20s, recently returned from overseas and tested positive while in quarantine.

Both cases have been in a medi-hotel since their arrival and there is no public health risk. The pair are travelling together and tested positive on their day one test and will remain in isolation.

A previously reported case from the weekend has been removed from South Australia's totals as it had already been counted in another jurisdiction.
