South Australian Police Commissioner Grant Stevens provided a COVID update this morning for the public with the announcement of restrictions to ease across the state.

Stevens announced that from one minute past midnight this Thursday 23 September dancing at private functions and activities will be permitted for a maximum of 50 people per dance floor.

Stevens noted that caps at 150 people will remain for private functions and activities but the allowance of up to 50 people able to dance will come as a very welcome change for the South Australian public.

Alongside this, stand up consumption will also be permitted in outdoor areas at licensed premises such as beer gardens.

Changes to people coming in to South Australia from Queensland will also come in to effect from one minute past midnight this Saturday 25 September.

Those travelling from two local government areas in south east Queensland will no longer be required to have PCR testing.

Nicola Spurrier also updated the public in a seperate presser regarding the states current COVID-19 situation.

Spurrier said that there is currently an investigation undergoing surrounding a potential false positive, but assured the public this situations do arise from time to time but it is being handled well with those involved in quarantine.

The unconfirmed case is a young person who lives in SA but travelled to NSW.

Spurrier continued to note that we are in a high risk situation with the developing state of Victoria and New South Whales, and encouraged everyone to continue to get their vaccinations.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, please seek testing as soon as possible.
