Dear sector colleagues,

As you will be aware, the State’s Transition Committee met yesterday and agreed upon a further easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

From midnight last night, travellers from WA, NT and Tasmania were allowed into the state without a mandatory 14-day quarantine. This will be extended to all states and territories from July 20.

Under the Roadmap to Recovery from Friday June 19 a range of restrictions will be eased, allowing private gatherings of up to 75 people including funerals, weddings and other ceremonies. Indoor classes such as dance groups will be able to have to 20 people, if they can provide 7sq m per person. 

Competitive outdoor contact sport, and training for indoor contact sport can restart from June 25.

All these steps work towards restoring our way of life and supporting our economic recovery, as a state and as a community.

Clearly COVID-19 transmission remains a major risk as we move into our recovery phase and reopen our borders. We must continue to be alert and vigilant, particularly for our most vulnerable clients.

I would urge all staff to:

  • Remain vigilant and take precautions about illness and any suspicious symptoms.
  • Isolate if sick.
  • Continue to maintain thorough hygiene, including hand washing.
  • Maintain social distancing, including the 1.5m rule.

Again, thank you for your continued efforts in supporting South Australians.

Best regards,

Lois Boswell
Acting Chief Executive
