South Australia has woken up free of the strictest lockdown in Australia since the beginning of the pandemic.
Revellers took to the city to celebrate the lifting of the state’s short but hard lockdown restrictions, while people reported long queues at drive-through fast food outlets around Adelaide.
Premier Steven Marshall once again congratulated SA on its adherence to restrictions and record testing numbers over the past week, while reminding South Aussies that they are not out of the woods from this cluster.
SA’s chief public health officer Dr Nicola Spurrier confirmed that there had been just one new case of COVID-19 recorded on Sunday.
The positive case is in a overseas traveller in her 20s and is not related to the Parafield cluster. The woman remains in a city medi-hotel, having tested positive 10 days into her quarantine
Currently, there are 26 active cases related to the Parafield cluster, with zero cases of community transmission having been recorded.
