SA Health’s Chief Public Health Officer, Professor Nicola Spurrier has provided an update on the current COVID-19 cases in SA.

There has been a new case in a SA from a woman in her 20s, who has travelled from Victoria.

The individual has travelled with her family after being provided approval for this shift.

Upon coming in to SA, and having undergone mandatory testing, she was picked up as COVID-19 positive.

The individual has very mild symptoms.

Following contract tracing interviews, Professor Spurrier says that there has been no exposure to any South Australians as close contacts.

The family went straight to a relatives house, and to be extra cautious, the individual has been admitted to a Medi-Hotel to isolate.

The rest of the family are in quarantine, and they will undergo the first day and 12th day testing process.

A South Australian family member will also be treated as a close contact, but Professor Spurrier says that it is a contained household.

Professor Spurrier says that this new case is no risk to the public.

There are currently three active cases making a total of 448 cases, with 441 individuals recovered.

Professor Spurrier also confirmed that the other two active cases are both stable, and all of their close contacts have returned negative tests.

This individual was travelling into SA as she had new employment in the state. This will no longer be approved from tomorrow.

SA residents who are not essential travellers will not be able to travel the border as of midnight tonight.

More to come.
