Change to COVID-19 isolation requirements

COVID-19 isolation requirements for South Australians have changed.
From Friday 9 September 2022:
  • People who test positive to COVID-19 will only need to isolate for 5 days.
  • You can leave isolation after 5 days if you do not have symptoms like a sore throat, runny nose, cough, or shortness of breath.
  • If you have these symptoms, please stay in isolation until your symptoms improve.
On days 6 and 7 after testing positive:
  • You must wear a mask when around other people.
  • You must not enter Tier 1 or 2 sensitive settings, except to access urgent medical care or supplies. Workers cannot return to these settings until day 8 at the earliest.
On days 8 to 10 after testing positive:
  • It is strongly recommended you wear a mask when around other people.
  • Avoid visiting hospitals (except to access urgent medical care or supplies), correctional services, residential disability care or residential aged care facilities. Workers without symptoms may return to these settings if agreed by their employer (mask strongly recommended).
People with a weak immune system (transplant recipient or receiving chemotherapy) should continue to follow this advice on days 8 to 14.
