Adelaide, South Australia:

South Australian Health Authorities have urged residents to get themselves tested for Covid-19 after learning a man in his 30s broke quarantine and visited several shops in Adelaide last Sunday while infected.

SA Health Authorities have identified four locations as high-risk:

• Big W Brickworks, South Rd, Torrensville – Sunday 22 November 12.15pm to 12.50pm

• Flinders University Sturt Campus, Bedford Park – 13 November to 28 November

• Foodland, The Parade, Norwood – Sunday 22 November 1.20pm to 2.00pm

• Kmart, Anzac Hwy, Kurralta Park – Sunday 22 November 2.45pm to 3.10pm

SA Health has urged people in the four locations around the time to seek testing immediately – even if one is not exhibiting any symptoms. Pop-up testing clinics will open this afternoon at Big W Brickworks and Kmart Kurralta Park.

One will not need to self-quarantine if they receive a negative test, but they should monitor for symptoms and get re-tested immediately if symptoms develop.
