No ‘freedom day’ for SA says premier







There will be no “freedom day” in South Australia when vaccine targets are reached, with efforts continuing to try to keep COVID-19 out of the state, Premier Steven Marshall says.

The premier says while SA has signed up to the national roadmap, to allow border measures and lockdown rules to ease, some level of local restrictions will remain in force to keep people safe.

“We will have to keep some public health social measures in place,” he said.

“We’re not going to have a freedom day where the borders are open and restrictions are removed at the same time.

“This is still a very dangerous pandemic. We want to ensure we maintain our good management of the disease.”

Mr Marshall said anybody who became infected in SA, along with their close contacts, would still face periods in quarantine.

The premier said South Australia did not want the disease “running through our state” but believed the virus “will eventually come in”.

“We want to do that on our own terms and that means, test, trace, isolate and quarantine, and have some public health measures remaining in place,” he said.
