Let's not undo all the good

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how mild, should seek testing. COVID-19 symptoms include:

  • fever OR chills
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • runny nose
  • shortness of breath
  • loss of taste or smell

People should get tested for COVID-19 each time they become unwell or if they develop new symptoms (with no alternative illness to explain these symptoms).

More information about testing locations and options is available at www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/covidtesting.

If you have, or if you know someone with symptoms of COVID-19, encourage them to seek testing. Once you get a test, return home immediately and wait for your results. If you receive a negative test result, you should still stay at home and not attend work, school or childcare until you are feeling well again.

Do not go to public places if you are unwell – this includes work, education, childcare, shopping centres, sporting events, social or religious gatherings.

Everyone must continue to follow measures that will help stop the spread. Practice good hygiene, keep 1.5 metres distance from others and stay at home if you are unwell.

People experiencing any of the following symptoms should be tested for COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills (in the absence of an alternative illness that explains these symptoms)
  • An acute respiratory infection e.g. symptoms of cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath
  • Loss of smell or alteration in the sense of taste
