SA Health has provided an update on the state’s COVID-19 situation, particularly the cluster at Adelaide Airport.
13 people related to the baggage handler cluster have now tested positive, including 11 baggage handlers and two family members.
107 people who have had exposure to this cluster are now self-isolating.
As a result in the growth of the cluster, recommendations relating to those who have travelled through the airport have been changed.
If you have been in the Adelaide Airport terminal or carpark in the last 14 days and are symptomatic, it is advised you self-isolate and get a test done as soon as possible.
If you have travelled through the airport, the recommendation is to clean your baggage with detergent and let it dry in the air.
In South Australia to date, this brings the total of cases to 367, with an increase of 30 cases in the last 24 hours.
Four of these are linked to the Ruby Princess, which brings the total to 109 cases from cruise ships in South Australia.
Six are people in intensive care at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, all are males between 52 and 77 years old, and five of these people are in critical condition.
SA Health also commented on romantic couples in South Australia in response to a media question, stating at the moment, one should avoid non-essential travel, even to other houses. There currently isn’t a law in place but if a couple does come together, there is the potential for the virus to spread, and this needs to be kept in mind.
