Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier addressed the South Australian public today with three new positive cases in SA.

The first is an international traveller in his 30s who was in a medi-hotel.

The second which Spurrier said was of high concern was a woman in her 30s who was a fly in fly out miner. She was an essential worker coming into the state from Victoria.

She arrived in Adelaide yesterday at 6pm after flying over from Melbourne Airport on flight JQ778.

She was tested at the airport and received a positive case back this morning. She travelled from the airport by taxi to the Quest hotel on King William Street. While she was only in the state for a short period of time, Spurrier has said she was highly infectious.

The taxi driver who transported the woman to Quest hotel has been contacted and is required to quarantine.

The third case is a man in his 40s who came from Victoria. Spurrier said this was no surprise as his co-driver was a positive case.

This morning, SA Health identified new COVID-19 exposure locations in relation to this case and updated the risk level of two existing exposure locations in South Australia linked to positive cases of COVID-19.

Two locations have been upgraded because the co-driver tested positive and was infectious in the exposure locations. Both truck driver cases are in the dedicated COVID-19 positive medi-hotel.
