New covid cases detected as
South Australian border reopens
27 November 2021
Fully vaccinated travellers from central Sydney and Melbourne are
allowed into South Australia since the borders opened on Tuesday,
SA Premier Steven Marshall said fully vaccinated travellers from
every Victorian and New South Wales local government area are now
permitted to travel, except for Byron Bay, which is yet to hit a
vaccination rate of 80 per cent.
There had been some concern that a statistical anomaly meant
people from the central Sydney and Melbourne local government
areas would be locked out until safe to enter.
“This has caused enormous frustration for people who haven’t been
sure regarding whether they can come in yet or not,” Mr Marshall
Travellers from any area with community transmission will need to
have a COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to arrival in SA and
undergo a daily symptom check for 14 days.
They have to undergo tests within 24 hours of arrival in SA, and
again on days six and 13.
Vaccinated South Australians who leave for 72 hours or less will not
be required to have a test prior to arrival.
Mr Marshall said with borders reopening it was “inevitable that there
will be cases coming into South Australia”.
“We want to minimise the risk of this disease taking hold in our
state,” he said.
We note however that already, a small number of covid cases have
started being detected in SA.
