South Australia has recorded its sixth day in a row with no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the state as its testing blitz comes to an end.

The state has so far recorded 438 cases in total, with over 95 per cent of those who have had the virus now recovered.

The news has seen attention turn to the easing of restrictions with the state’s chief public health officer Dr Nicola Spurrier saying that authorities are considering allowing some activities to get underway once more.

Meanwhile, the lockdowns that have been in place in the Barossa Valley for over a month will now be lifted.

Residents in the Barossa were urged to avoid any non-essential travel, with schools shut down to prevent the virus’s spread.

No new cases have been found in the area over the past month.
