A staggering 605,086 people have undergone COVID testing in South Australia as of 2pm today. It’s a number which continues to climb as the state enters its first day of lockdown amidst concern over the Parafield cluster discovered early this week in Adelaide.
To meet demand, Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi’s drive through testing clinic will be open 24/7 until Friday 20 November. Thousands have queued for their test this week in Adelaide, with people turning out in droves across SA.
There have been no new cases announced today, on the first of a six day lockdown enforced by Premier Steven Marshall yesterday.
Stay at home if you feel unwell, particularly if you’re suffering from respiratory symptoms. Call ahead to your local testing clinic, but do make sure you’re seen.
A full list of testing sites can be found here on the SA Health website.
