South Australians are being told to reconsider any plans they have to travel to Victoria as the state’s Black Rock cluster continues to grow.

Chief Public Health Officer Dr Nicola Spurrier says that while contact tracing is underway over the border, people should be flexible with their travel arrangements.

However, SA authorities will not be closing the border at this stage.

“I am very hopeful the situation in Victoria will come to an end,” Professor Spurrier said on Sunday.

“At the moment I would be saying to South Australians remain alert, but not alarmed.”

Authorities are encouraging people to get tested if they experience any symptoms and to be alert if they have travelled to Victoria or have close contacts who have recently visited Victoria.

Anybody who has travelled over the border is being urged to check the Victorian health authority’s website for an up-to-date list of locations exposed to COVID-19.
