SA border restrictions imposed for NSW hotspot visitors

The announcement came this afternoon following the news of three positive COVID-19 cases in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

South Australia has issued a hard border announcement this afternoon, banning entry into the state for those who have visited New South Wales COVID-19 hotspots. 

The hard border came into affect today in an announcement from South Australian Police Commissioner Grant Stevens, with those who have already arrived in SA ordered to isolate and contact SA Health to find out more information regarding testing and home quarantine. 

From 2pm on June 17, anyone who has visited any of the exposure locations listed below and on the NSW Health website (excluding those locations dated 3 or 4 June) at the specified dates and times are not permitted to enter South Australia. 

Those already in the state who have visited any of the sites must quarantine for 14 days, get tested immediately as well as on day 5 and 13 after their arrival back into the state, as well as wear a face mask at any time they come into contact with the public during their 14 days i.e. while being tested. 

You must also complete this form, found at the SA Health website.

The border announcement comes shortly after a press conference was given this morning by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, announcing the NSW outbreak had grown to three cases, primarily focused around Sydney’s eastern suburbs. 

SA Health met this morning to discuss the plan of action for South Australians currently in NSW, deciding that those who have been at any of the high-risk locations should isolate where they are, but are encouraged to contact SA Health to determine travel plan changes and how they can get home. 

It was revealed that a man in his 60s had tested positive for the Delta strain of the virus, as well as his wife, with the pair visiting several venues in the eastern suburbs. One of the hotspots, Belle café in Vaucluse was where an elderly woman in her 70s also contracted the virus and has since tested positive for COVID-19. 

There is currently a police investigation into whether the man in his 60’s – a limousine driver – breached quarantine protocols, when transporting international flight crews from the airport.

People in every state are advised to get a test if they experience any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild.
