There have been two new cases of COVID-19 today, reported from a medi-hotel. There have been a total of 620 cases notified in South Australia.

Today’s cases include a female in her teens and a male in his 60s who both recently returned from overseas and have been in a medi-hotel since their arrival.

Testing returned last night and showed a second strong result for levels of COVID-19 traces within our wastewater. At this stage, given that there is as yet no clear explanation to the wastewater detection result, it’s imperative that anyone who has been in the Adelaide CBD in the past week seek immediate testing if they have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild.
