In a press conference this morning Premier Steven Marshall, Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier and Police Commissioner Grant Stevens addressed the South Australian public today with an update on the current COVID situation in South Australia.
Within the daily update, it was announced that the Wayville vaccination clinic has seen a supersized ramp up in appointments as the clinic expands bookings.
The Wayville clinic has seen the space go from 42 bays up to 96 bays with Marshall saying they are looking for more and more opportunities to get more vaccines administered right around the state and the country.
Bookings have come available for the first and second dose of Pfizer as early as tomorrow with dozens of others popping up across the coming weeks and right through to next month.
This announcement came following news of a sixth truck driver who has tested positive to COVID-19 since passing through South Australia.
The driver was carrying timber so there may be a number of timber yards in our state however this is currently under investigation.
Spurrier noted there is a now a new exposure location linked to the new case, that is likely to be a BP Station and Wingfield and will be listed officially on the SA Health website soon.
The transition committee also met this morning and have decided there will be some minor reductions in restrictions to private events.Police Commissioner Grant Stevens went on to discuss that there will be no changes to borders however the wedding sector has been heavily considered and restrictions revised.
Private activities – previously restricted to 50 – will now be expanded to 150 people. This is allowed as long as there is a QR code, an independent COVID marshal and 1 person per 2 sqm ruling. You can stand up to drink, however dancing is still restricted to the bridal party.This change in private event restrictions is not just for weddings, and will be allowed for all private events.
