South Australia COVID-Ready Plan

South Australia's plan for the safe easing of restrictions and how COVID-19 will be managed has been released.

From 23 November, changes will be made to border and activity restrictions, with a further easing signalled as the state reaches 90% full vaccination.

The COVID-Ready Plan is based on health advice. It outlines a measured and clear path out of the pandemic, ensuring COVID-19 can be controlled when it enters South Australia and prepares the state for living with COVID-19 in the longer term.

COVID safe behaviours will still be needed – getting tested for COVID-19 with any symptoms, no matter how mild, as soon as possible, along with physical distancing, hand hygiene and staying home when sick.
