breaking news

South Australia has gone into a 6-day lockdown with widespread restrictions currently in place.  

Premier Stephen Marshall announced the news during a press conference yesterday, with all schools, takeaway, restaurants, pubs, cafes, venues, and aged care facilities closed.

Weddings, funerals, regional internal travel and construction work has also been banned.

Following the 6-day lockdown, restrictions are expected to ease for a further 8 days.

Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier has considered the 6-day lockdown for SA as a circuit breaker to stop the Parafield COVID-19 cluster growing.

Masks will be mandatory for all South Australians, while supermarkets, medical facilities, public transport and vet clinics will remain open.
