There have been three new cases of COVID-19 reported today. There have been 976 cases reported in South Australia to date.

Today’s cases are two women in their 30s and 50s and a man in his 60s. Of these cases, one case acquired their infection locally and is a close contact linked to the Norwood cluster and one case acquired their infection overseas and has been in a medi-hotel since their arrival. A third case acquired their infection interstate and has been classified as historical; this case will not be counted towards our active numbers.
