South Australia could soon see more COVID-19 restrictions reimposed as the state looks to get ahead of the virus’s reemergence.
Premier Steven Marshall has not ruled out more restrictions for the state, following another day recording two new cases.
7News reports that the Premier is set to announce a return to the one person per four square metre rule this week, down from the current two square metre rule.
The change would most heavily affect pubs and restaurants who had been edging closer to normal operation since the end of June.
Other changes are also expected to be implemented for South Australian gyms.
The news comes following reinstated restrictions on home gatherings and alcohol consumption at licensed venues.
Under the reimposed restrictions home gatherings are now limited to 10 people and anybody drinking at a licensed venue must now be seated.
Yesterday, the state recorded two new cases of COVID-19, one of which could be a case of community transmission.
SA Health issued an urgent health warning for those who visited various businesses throughout Adelaide’s inner north in light of the new cases.
