The latest COVID-19 update from the Government of South Australia

REVISING BUSINESS RESTRICTIONS:
Thanks to your cooperation adhering to social distancing measures, and an impressive testing regime, South Australia may soon be in a position to scale down some of the business restrictions in place.

A Transition Committee has been established to see South Australia recover from the public health emergency and reboot the economy. First priorities of the Committee, which includes Professor Nicola Spurrier and Commissioner Grant Stevens, are facilitating the safe return of funeral services and allowing travel to regional South Australia.

A reminder that the best action you can take to keep our community safe as restrictions ease is to download the COVIDSafe App.
