SA reopening to all of Queensland from Friday

Travellers arriving from anywhere in Queensland will be permitted to enter South Australia from this coming Friday without having to go into isolation as border restrictions ease.

Previously, a hard border was in place with Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Gold Coast, Logan, Redland, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Somersert, but that will be removed at 12.01am on Friday 16 July.

Those regions will instead move to Level 3 restrictions, in line with Townsville, meaning testing is required on days one, three and 13 from arrival in SA.

In addition, people who have been in home quarantine in SA on arrival from southeast Queensland over the last 14 days will be allowed to leave isolation from 12.01am on Friday.

Today the SA Premier Steven Marshall also gave an update about the COVID-positive removalist who spent some time in SA while infectious.

The Premier says a new exposure site in SA has been identified - the Shell service station in Tailem Bend on 9 July from 5.20-7pm.

Anybody who was at that service station on 9 July at the time listed will need to go into quarantine, get tested, and make themselves known to SA Health.

SA recorded two new cases of COVID-19 yesterday: a man in his 40s and a boy who both acquired their infection overseas and have been in a medi-hotel since their arrival.
