WA issues new health advice for travellers returning from South Australia
WA Health has updated its advice for travellers who have recently returned from South Australia, following the detection of new COVID cases there.
South Australia’s border to the eastern states reopened three days ago.
On Friday, SA Health reported two new COVID cases, a man and a woman in their 20s who had tested positive after arriving from interstate.
Given that SA is now open to states with COVID cases, Western Australia on Friday imposed new rules for arrivals from that state.
Anyone who has been to a close or casual contact exposure site in SA during the relevant times is required to get tested within 48 hours and self-quarantine for 14 days.
They will also be required to have another COVID test on day 12.
Anyone who has been at a low-risk casual contact exposure location in SA should monitor their health and get tested if they develop any COVID symptoms.
Adelaide Airport is subject to multiple exposure times, locations and classifications.
The full list of exposure sites in SA can be found here.
“Anyone who has recently arrived from SA and has not visited any of the listed venues should present for COVID-19 testing if they develop symptoms and continue to check the list of exposure sites, which is being updated regularly,” WA Premier Mark McGowan stated on Twitter on Friday.

South Australia on Friday reached 80 per cent fully vaccination goal for people aged 16 and over.
