There have been three new cases of COVID-19 today, all reported from a medi-hotel. There have been a total of 655 cases notified in South Australia.

Today’s cases are a man in his 20s, a teenager, and a child, who all returned from overseas and have been in a medi-hotel since their arrival. Serology testing is underway to determine if they are old infections.

A previously confirmed case has today been reclassified as an historic case base on further testing and has been removed from our active cases.

Queensland Health has recently identified a number of COVID-19 public exposure sites which can be found on the QLD Health website.
