COVID-19

New dates and exposure locations added as truckie’s co-driver tests positive

New Covid-19 exposure dates, times and locations have been added, as a new truck driver tests positive.

SA Health has identified new COVID-19 exposure locations and updated the risk level of two existing exposure locations in South Australia linked to positive cases of COVID-19.

The new exposure locations are associated with the truck driver reported by SA Health yesterday who came from Victoria. New information indicates the truck driver was here on a previous trip, on 30 September. 

In addition, two locations have been upgraded because his co-driver tested positive late today. He was therefore infectious in the exposure locations, which has necessitated the risk upgrade. Both cases are in our dedicated COVID-19 positive medi-hotel.

If you were at the below locations at the specified date and time, you must immediately quarantine for 14 days since you were at the location, ensuring you quarantine away from others (including household members), get tested immediately, and again on day 5 and day 13 after the last day you were at the location. Visit the SA Health website to complete an online form and notify SA Health you were at this location.
