South Australia has recorded another new COVID-19 case in an essential worker returning from Victoria.
The man, who is in his twenties and a South Australian resident, arrived back in the state on July 26.
Professor Nicola Spurrier reported the man went straight into quarantine, and SA Health is confident this new case poses no risk to the South Australian public.
The man has mild symptoms, and only one close contact has been identified.
The close contact is also now in quarantine.
“This case, unfortunate as it is, shows that our system here in South Australia is working,” said Professor Spurrier.
The state’s high testing rate has continued, with a record 4,964 laboratory tests done yesterday.
South Australia now has four active COVID-19 cases, with 441 people having recovered, and 449 cases in total.
