The South Australian Government recently announced changes to the state’s close contact quarantine rules.
The latest changes – effective from 12:01am on Saturday, 30 April – mean for seven days following exposure, close contacts will be required to:
- Undertake five Rapid Antigen Tests over the seven-day period
- Wear masks when outside the house
- Avoid visiting high-risk settings (such as hospitals, correctional services, aged care and disability care facilities)
- Notify employers or educational facilities of their close contact status
- Avoid non-essential gatherings and those who are vulnerable.
These changes brings SA in line with New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT, and are targeted at helping small businesses and workers whilst balancing the community’s health needs.
