New exposure sites were revealed by SA Health as the state recorded six new cases of Covid-19 on Sunday, including two linked to the Norwood cluster.

Four men, including a teenager and others in their twenties, thirties and fifties, tested positive, along with two women in their twenties and fifties.

New exhibit venues were updated on Sunday night, including the Istanbul Lounge at Kensington Park, Qantas flight QF741 from Sydney, and Virgin flight VA233 from Melbourne.

Anyone who has visited these sites at different times on Sunday and Friday is considered close contact.

Other places of exposure to casual contacts include the Fishbank restaurant in Adelaide, Press Food and Wine in the city, Europa in Glenelg, the RAA Cafe Mile End, the Qantas flight QF741 from Sydney, and the Virgin flight VA233.

A full list of locations and show times can be found on the SA Health website.

Two of the cases relate to the Norwood cluster, which now has 24.
Sunday’s six cases have been vaccinated. One case was acquired abroad, two interstate and two locally. The origin of the sixth case is under investigation.

To date, 968 cases have been reported in South Australia, with 46 currently active cases.

There were 11,790 tests performed on Saturday, according to SA Health.

SA Health announced five new cases of Covid-19 in the state on Saturday. One person was in hospital – but not in intensive care, nor ventilated.

SA Health updated its exhibition advice on Saturday to include the Crown Hotel in Victor Harbor as a close contact site on Sunday, November 28, between 7:20 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.

He also updated his advice for the Halfway Hotel in Beverley, now a close contact site on Tuesday, November 30 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

SA Health advises you that if you were at a close contact site and not vaccinated you should quarantine for 14 days and get tested on days 1, 6 and 13. If you are vaccinated you should quarantine for seven days and get tested on days 1, 6 and 13.

SA Health said contacts won’t always receive a text or email – and people with even minor symptoms should be tested immediately.

Despite concerns about the Omicron variant now detected in NSW and ACT, state health chiefs on Saturday refused to close state borders.

Prime Minister Steven Marshall said authorities remained “extraordinarily concerned” but that there would be no border changes at this stage.

But stricter testing protocols have been applied to people arriving from NSW, ACT and Victoria, and they must now be tested and isolated until they receive their results.
