Premier Steven Marshall has announced any overseas arrivals into South Australia from Friday, December 10th will be able to isolate at home if they have a quarantine location approved through EntryCheck SA.
The change will result in fewer arrivals quarantining in CBD medi-hotels, but all overseas arrivals are still required to isolate for 14 days amid fears of the Omicron variant spreading.
The changes come just in time for Christmas, giving overseas arrivals the opportunity to isolate themselves somewhere more comfortable, whilst still distancing themselves from others.
All travellers are still required to be tested for COVID-19 within the first 24 hours of arrival, on day 5, and again on day 13. A blood test may also be required.
More to come.
