South Australia’s COVID-19 emergency declaration ended

On Tuesday 24 May, the South Australian Government ended the state’s Major Emergency Declaration in South Australia for COVID-19.

The move signifies a change in the state’s management of the pandemic, with the State Coordinator first declaring a Major Emergency on March 22, 2020, when the COVID-19 outbreak emerged in South Australia.

The declaration gave the State Coordinator powers to issue directions such as lockdowns, density restrictions and quarantine orders as the state sought to contain the spread of the virus.
