Effective 19 November 2020:

  • Anyone who has visited metro Adelaide since Saturday 7 November 2020 should be swabbed and treated as suspected COVID-19.
  • Anyone who has been in South Australia since Saturday 7 November 2020, but who has not been to metropolitan Adelaide can be tested with or without symptoms. They only need to isolate if they have symptoms.

 

If you have a patient who has recently travelled to South Australia, manage them according to the CHO’s GP quick guide and checklist.
