There has been no new cases of COVID-19 today. There have been a total of 603 cases notified in South Australia.

One million COVID-19 tests

More than one million COVID-19 tests have now been processed in South Australia, giving the state one of the the world's highest testing rates per capita.

Testing is an essential element of stopping the spread of COVID-19 in South Australia and to know that there is no COVID-19 transmission in the community.

Despite this significant achievement, there is no room for complacency and SA's testing rates have been dropping in the last few weeks.

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, even if mild, should seek testing immediately. Find more information and testing locations at sahealth.sa.gov.au/COVIDtesting.
