COVID-19 update from SA’s chief public health officer

29 July 2020

The current COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria is concerning and measures are being taken to protect South Australians from the increased risk caused as a result of this situation.

In this video, Professor Nicola Spurrier, Chief Public Health Officer, SA Health, answers a number of questions South Australians may have. 

Please share this video within your networks.

Additional measures to protect South Australians are being implemented, allowing only essential travellers to enter the state from Victoria, and enforcing quarantine and testing for travellers entering the state from Victoria, ACT and NSW.

South Australians must also play their part to stop the spread:

  • Get tested if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how mild.
  •  Practise excellent hygiene.
  • Keep 1.5 metres distance from others wherever and whenever possible.
  • Do not go out if you are unwell – this includes work, education, childcare, shopping centres, sporting events, social or religious gatherings.

Let's not undo all the good South Australia. Let's work together to keep stopping the spread.
