Health Heroes Hotel will house those who are on the frontline against this virus, and have vulnerable or elderly family members at home.
“By working together we have put South Australia in a great place,” he says.
SA’s Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier will be providing an update late this afternoon of the number of cases of COVID-19.
She has also announced that as of today we have two South Australians currently in intensive care from COVID-19.
“We have people now admitted that are critically ill,” she says, emphasising the importance of following quarantine rules.
“If you have been asked to stay in quarantine, you must stay in quarantine. If you have been made away that your business has to close, then you must have the courage to close your business,” she says.
She asks for the public to restrict movements, and to stay at home as the first potential case from community transmission has been pinpointed.
