South Australia has recorded two new COVID-19 cases, returning travellers in hotel quarantine.

The two were travelling with a child, who has been deemed a close contact, and is being watched for symptoms.

The family will remain in hotel quarantine, with Professor Nicola Spurrier confirming the new cases pose no risk to the wider South Australian public.

Professor Spurrier also confirmed South Australia has had its first serious PPE breach.

Whilst the positive cases were undergoing testing on Tuesday, a security guard was found to be too close to the testing procedure.

The security guard is now being considered a close contact, and will go into hotel quarantine.

“I do apologise to that hotel security guard,” said Professor Spurrier.

Today’s two positive cases bring South Australia’s total to 468.

More to come.
