This afternoon, SA Health released a statement to the media from Professor Nicola Spurrier, Chief Public Health Officer regarding anyone who has travelled to Victoria recently.

Spurrier said “We continue to receive detailed information on a daily basis about new COVID-19 cases from colleagues in Victoria and we will be closely monitoring the situation over coming days.

“Our number one priority is protecting the health and wellbeing of our community and we are communicating quarantining and testing requirements relating to specific venues in Victoria with travellers crossing the Victorian border via text message alerts.

“We urge anyone who has recently visited Victoria to monitor our website for health alerts and to follow these instructions if they have visited any of the high risk locations listed.

“Everyone in South Australia regardless of where they have recently travelled must monitor their health and get tested straightaway if they develop any symptoms, no matter how mild. Reminding South Australians, symptoms can be extremely mild and not only include a fever and/or symptoms of a mild cold, but diarrhoea and vomiting can also be a feature, plus an acute loss of taste or smell.”
