South Australians are breathing a sigh of relief this morning with health authorities reporting zero new cases of community transmission.

The news follows speculation on Wednesday that the state would be plunged into a snap lockdown with five cases in SA linked back to the Northern Territory mine.

Premier Steven Marshall shared cautious optimism in light of the numbers.

“We’re very pleased with the way things are going at the moment,” Mr Marshall told reporters on Thursday morning.

However, he stopped short of removing the renewed restrictions earlier this week, telling South Aussies that it will still be “an anxious wait over the next 24 hours”.

The state’s restrictions have been earmarked as staying in place for one week from their reintroduction.

At this point, there have been no further changes announced to rules around large gatherings, events with COVID Management plans or the upcoming AFL clash between Adelaide and Brisbane at Adelaide Oval.
