COVID positive hotel update

People in South Australia who test positive to COVID-19 will now be transferred to a new dedicated facility at Tom's Court.

The 72 bed hotel is staffed exclusively with SA Health and SA Police staff for nursing and security purposes.

Cases diagnosed prior to the opening of Tom's Court will complete their quarantine at the Pullman Hotel.

To ensure the state's hotel quarantine process is as safe as possible, daily saliva testing has been rolled out for medi-hotel workers, in addition to the weekly nose and throat swab testing.
