GREEK ON HALIFAX
Owner not happy about testing delays
The owner of the restaurant feared to be a super-spreader site in
South Australia’s latest COVID-19 outbreak has raised concerns
about testing delays and communication break-downs, after finding
out key details through the media and not from health officials.
Ross Galantomos owns The Greek on Halifax, where a man who was
infectious attended a function on Saturday night.
“On Monday evening when we found out that we were an exposure
site from the media, not directly from SA Health, a number of staff
members went to get tested straight away,” Mr Galantomos said.
According to the ABC network, a patron at the function and a woman
who worked there have both tested positive, but Mr Galantomos
said his staff, who are considered high-risk, have been caught up in
the long queues to get tested.
“Including the young lady who has tested positive, and she drove to
Tailem Bend to get a test cause that was the best option,” Mr
Premier Steven Mar-shall was forced to apologise on Thursday after
some people reported wait times of over 14 hours at Adelaide
testing stations, while others said they had to sleep in their cars.
