South Australia is once again COVID-19-free as the three remaining cases in the state are cleared by health authorities.
The three cases were identified at the end of June, and were the state’s first confirmed cases of the virus in over a month.
All three of the cases were repatriated Australian citizens who arrived back in the country from India.
They have been in supervised quarantine since returning, with no further cases having been recorded.
The news comes as Premier Steven Marshall announced a fresh COVID-19 testing blitz across the state, with new mobile testing set to be implemented.
Testing will be primarily focused on those coming across the border from Victoria either by land or air.
Any South Australians returning from across the border will now be required to submit to a mandatory test.
“We are asking all people who have been into Victoria in recent weeks to present themselves immediately for testing for the COVID-19,” Premier Steven Marshall urged people today.
Those coming across the border will also be required to wear supplied face masks when coming into contact with people in SA.
