There have been three new cases of COVID-19 today. There have been a total of 522 cases reported in South Australia.
Since the previous report, one confirmed case has been removed from our total case numbers as they had previously been tested and confirmed positive overseas.
Today’s cases are two women in their 20s, and a woman in her 50s who have all recently returned from overseas and returned positive results in hotel quarantine. They have been in a medi-hotel since their arrival.
There are 17 active cases in SA and 501 people have been cleared of COVID-19. There have been four reported deaths from COVID-19. More than 586,000 tests have been undertaken.
From Tuesday 1 December, people travelling from Victoria to SA will not need to quarantine for 14 days.
If you have, or if you know someone with symptoms of COVID-19, encourage them to seek testing as soon as symptoms appear.
Once you get a test, return home immediately and wait for your results. If you receive a negative test result, you should still stay at home and not attend work, school or childcare until you are feeling well again.
Do not go to public places if you are unwell – this includes work, education, childcare, shopping centres, sporting events, social or religious gatherings.
Everyone must continue to follow measures that will help stop the spread. Practice good hygiene, keep 1.5 metres distance from others and stay at home if you are unwell.
People experiencing any of the following symptoms should be tested for COVID-19:
- Fever or chills (in the absence of an alternative illness that explains these symptoms)
- An acute respiratory infection e.g. symptoms of cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath
- Loss of smell or alteration in the sense of taste
