SA Health response

To protect the health and wellbeing of all South Australians and help stop the spread of COVID-19, a range of measures have been implemented on the advice of our medical and public health experts.

This has been vital in the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has positioned our health system well to respond to surges in COVID-19 cases.
