Premier Steven Marshall has confirmed that South Australia remains without a new case of community transmission of the coronavirus since the discovery of a case at centre of the Parafield cluster.

One new case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in SA, linked to the Parafield cluster.

The person who tested positive has been in quarantine since Monday last week, returning two negative tests over her quarantine period.

However, a positive test was returned on day eight of quarantine.

Premier Steven Marshall once again lauded South Australians’ testing numbers, with over 8500 tests undertaken in South Australia on Sunday.

“We’re continuing to see fantastic testing numbers in South Australia, over 77,000 last week,” Premier Steven Marshall told reporters in a press conference on Monday.

However, despite telling reporters that South Australia has “avoided this second wave,” Mr Marshall urged South Aussies to remain vigilant.
