NSW border restrictions to be lifted. Clinic updates.

New South Wales border restriction update

From Thursday 24 September, people entering South Australia from New South Wales will no longer be required to complete 14 days self-quarantine.

People entering SA before midnight tomorrow night will still be required to complete the full mandatory 14 days quarantine. This is because people who have arrived in the preceding 14 days present a different health risk.

People entering SA from NSW from midnight tomorrow night are still required to complete the Cross Border Travel Registration.

More information, including a new Cross Border Travel Direction and updated frequently asked questions, will be available shortly.

The COVID-19 clinic at the Women's and Children's Hospital has now changed its hours of operation to 9.00am to 6.00pm.

From Saturday 26 September, the COVID-19 clinic at the Royal Adelaide Hospital will be changing its hours of operation to 9.00am to 6.00pm.

Both clinics will continue to operate 7 days a week.

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
