South Australia coronovirus update as at 18 May 2021

There are four cases of COVID-19 today, which are all being considered as old infections. There have been a total of 746 cases notified in South Australia.

Today’s cases include a man and woman in their 20s, and two teenagers, who all acquired their infections overseas and have been in medi-hotels since their arrival. They have been added to our case numbers as they have not been counted overseas. All four were travelling with a case reported on Saturday 15 May that has also been reclassified as an old infection.

A man and woman in their 30s both remain in the Royal Adelaide Hospital in stable conditions.

We are closely monitoring the situation in Victoria and New South Wales, with confirmed cases of COVID-19 identified in the community. Anyone who has been in Victoria since Thursday 6 May 2021 should closely monitor for symptoms and get tested as soon as they develop, no matter how mild.

If you have been in NSW since Friday 30 April 2021, you should closely monitor yourself for symptoms and get tested as soon as they develop, no matter how mild. To check if you have visited any of the Victorian or NSW exposure sites, visit Contact tracing.
