With South Australia notching up nearly two straight weeks of zero new cases of coronavirus, South Aussies are beginning to look to the government and ask ‘what’s next’?
And while SA has had more relaxed restrictions up until this point, the question of ‘when can we get back to normal’ is still on everybody’s lips.
Premier Steven Marshall joined Jodie and Soda this morning to chat about where to next for South Australia.
“I think what will happen is the restrictions will likely be lifted from Monday. But National Cabinet met yesterday, they’re going to meet again on Friday and that will really give the framework or the road map back to what people are referring to as ‘COVID safe’ environment,” Premier Marshall told Jodie and Soda.

“So this is not a situation where you’d be able to have a match between the Crows and the Power at Adelaide Oval with 55,000 people, because mass gatherings are always going to stress us during this period of time.
“But trying to get as close back to normality as possible, and we want to give that road map back on Friday. It doesn’t mean everything will be lifted immediately, but it will map out the coming months and the easing of the restrictions.”
“I think South Australians are already doing the right thing. Kids are back at school, I think yesterday we got up to 80 per cent of kids back at school. In Victoria, it’s still 3 per cent.
“So our playgrounds are open, doesn’t mean that everything is going to be open straight away. It’s going to be a progression over the coming months and then we just slowly ease those restrictions so that we can get our lives back to normal which would be absolutely fantastic.”
