Parafield Cluster officially closed as SA records no new COVID-19 cases

Professor Spurrier has declared SA’s Parafield COVID-19 Cluster “closed.”

South Australia has recorded no new COVID-19 cases, with today marking 28 days since the last case related to the Parafield Cluster went into isolation.

“We have officially signed off the Parafield Cluster as closed,” said Chief Public Health Officer Professor Nicola Spurrier.

The news comes as New South Wales faces a COVID-19 outbreak in the Northern Beaches, with border restrictions now in place for South Australia.

“I really don’t want to put a date on it,” said Professor Spurrier regarding easing the border restrictions with New South Wales.

All South Australians who have symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested on the day symptoms appear.

Symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills (in the absence of an alternative illness that explains these symptoms)
  • An acute respiratory infection e.g. cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath
  • Loss of smell or alteration in the sense of taste
