SA’s active COVID-19 cases reduced after woman returns false positive

A previously confirmed COVID-19 case in South Australia has now been revealed as a false positive.

By

South Australia’s active COVID-19 cases have been reduced from ten to nine as it is revealed a woman returned a false positive result.

The case in question was announced yesterday, with chief public health officer, Professor Nicola Spurrier, stating her concern that it may have been a result of community transmission.

SA Health is currently dealing with a cluster related to a woman who visited a number of locations whilst infectious.

A COVID-19 Health Alert has been issued for locations in Salisbury Downs, Blair Athol and Kilburn relating to the cluster. 

Today also marks the opening of a drive-through COVID-19 testing facility in Victoria Park/Pakapakanthi.

It can be accessed via Wakefield Road (left-hand turn only), and is open from 8am to 6pm, seven days a week.

All ages are welcome, and no booking or GP referral is required. 

More to come.
