SA Health has reported three new cases of COVID-19 today, all in hotel quarantine.
Today’s cases are two women in their 20s and a woman in their 50s, al of whom have recently returned from overseas and returned positive results while in hotel quarantine.
A previous confirmed case has been removed from South Australia’s total of 522 cases because the person had previously returned a positive coronavirus test while overseas.
There are now 17 active coronavirus cases in South Australia.
– First flights land in Perth after border softening
The first interstate flight has landed in Perth since WA’s new border arrangements came into effect overnight.
The Sydney flight arrived with the first of more than 1,200 passengers expected today.
People from all states except New South Wales and Victoria can now enter Western Australia without an exemption and without quarantining.
WA Police Assistant Commissioner Paul Steel says the state is trusting travellers to comply with instructions to ensure community safety.
“The community of WA have, up to date done the right thing. This change in border position is a timely reminder to people to follow your quarantine directions, continue to do what you’ve always done and help us to keep the community safe,” Mr Steel said.
