There have been two new cases of COVID-19 today. There have been a total of 568 cases notified in South Australia.


Today’s cases are a male in his 70s who has recently returned from overseas and has been in a medi-hotel since his arrival.

In addition, a male in his 20s returned a weak positive test but further serology results confirmed an old infection. However, as it is the first time he returned a positive test, the result will still be added to our overall case numbers. No further public health action is required.

NSW travel restrictions remain in place in SA. To view the list of NSW locations and testing requirements visit www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/covidcontacttracing.
