From midnight tonight, people travelling to South Australia from the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) will no longer be required to self-quarantine for 14 days. People are still required to complete the Cross Border Travel Registration. Travellers from the ACT will be required to identify that they have been in only low community transmission zones (QLD, WA, NT, TAS) in the 14 days prior to their arrival in SA.
If you have, or if you know someone with symptoms of COVID-19, encourage them to seek testing. 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
