There have been two new cases of COVID-19 today, both reported from a medi-hotel. There have been a total of 724 cases notified in South Australia.

Today’s cases include a man in his 30s and a man in his 40s, who both acquired their infections overseas and have been in medi-hotels since their arrival. The man in his 40s is considered an old infection but has been added to our case numbers as he has not been diagnosed and counted overseas.

A man in his 60s has been admitted to the Royal Adelaide Hospital ICU and is in a stable condition.

A new Cross Border Travel—Associated Direction has been issued. This removes the restrictions on people entering from Perth and Peel regions of Western Australia.
