Two new cases yesterday

Yesterday, South Australia recorded its first two cases of COVID-19 since the borders were opened to vaccinated travellers on November 23.

They included a young Victorian girl who travelled to the state by road with her family, and a Victorian man who tested positive for COVID a month ago.

The man was not believed to be infectious.

The girl and her family have now returned interstate to their home near the Victorian border to quarantine, while her two grandparents in SA will be required to undertake seven days of home quarantine.

Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier said the family only stopped once in South Australia, to use a public toilet, but it was not being considered an exposure site.
