Chief Public Health Officer, Nicola Spurrier, has described this lockdown as a "circuit breaker" for the recent resurgence of COVID-19 in the State.
South Australians will not be able to leave their house to exercise for those six days and only one person per household is allowed to leave once a day to get essential items.
Older Australians will be self-isolated at home as everyone else is at the State. However, if you require help, you should coordinate with your family around how you should get help, whether they come and stay, or drop off supplies.
Closed over the six days:
Aged care facilities and disability care facilities
Schools and universities
Cafés, restaurants and pubs (takeaway will not be available over this period)
Outdoor sport and physical activity
FIFO (fly-in fly-out) workers
Holiday home lease or rental
Weddings and funerals
Remaining open over the six days:
Medical facilities and places with medical supplies
End of life visits for hospitals and aged care
Supermarkets (provisions for vulnerable community members)
Petrol stations and public transport
Emergency or necessary surgery
Critical infrastructure, like power, telecommunications and water
Banks and post offices
Childcare for families of essential workers
Airport and essential freight
You are able to leave the house if you are:
One person from a household once a day to go to a supermarket for essential supplies
An emergency services worker or providing essential services
To receive medical care or if you are seeking a COVID-19 test
To buy medical supplies
Organised end of life visits
An emergency situation (which has not been specified)
For agricultural work
When going out for essential services, you must be wearing a mask. Additionally, police will be able to question anyone about why they are outside their home.
Public transport will still be running, however, you are required to put 1.5 metres of physical distance between yourself and others. South Australian Police are asking people to be patient with public transport and are encouraging people to take the next bus, tram or train if there are too many people.
All post offices will continue working, you should be required to wear a mask while inside. It can be expected that some packages may be put on hold due to the restrictions on workplaces.
The Premier says to expect similar Melbourne-like lockdown restrictions for eight days after this 'circuit breaker' lockdown period.
