International flights into South Australia have been suspended for this week, gyms will close and there will be a cap of 100 people at pubs, clubs and restaurants as the state moves to tackle a growing cluster of Covid-19 cases for the first time since April.
The premier, Steven Marshall, announced the restrictions on Monday after the state reported 17 cases of Covid-19 connected to an outbreak from a quarantine hotel for returned travellers.
“Time is now the essence and we must act swiftly and decisively,” he said. “We cannot wait to see how bad this gets. We must act swiftly and decisively on the health advice to stay ahead of the game.”
New restrictions in force for two weeks from Tuesday mean people in South Australia will not be able to go to gyms, recreational facilities, trampoline centres and play cafes.
