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 Galantomos said. 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.
