SA COVID fears escalate as hundreds of Kmart and Big W shoppers told to seek testing immediately

Several new venues across South Australia have been placed on alert for coronavirus after a man did not follow quarantine directives.

The man, aged in his 30s, was one of two new cases announced on Saturday. There were no new cases on Sunday.

Chief Public Health Officer Dr Nicola Spurrier said he was not quarantining as he should have last week.

As a result, visitors to several locations around the city have been put on notice.

Anyone who attended the following venues between these times should seek testing and isolate immediately until they receive their results.

  • Flinders University Sturt Campus, Bedford Park between November 13 and November 28.
  • Big W Brickworks in Torrensville on Sunday November 22 between 12.15pm and 12.50pm.
  • Foodland Norwood on Sunday November 22 between 1.20pm and 2pm.
  • Kmart in Kurralta Park on Sunday November 22 between 2.45pm and 3.10pm.

“Those four locations, we are considering at high risk, and we want anyone who’s been there at those times and dates to get tested,” Spurrier said.

“It has, quite frankly, posed a very significant risk for us in South Australia.”
