“There are further gradual reductions in the restrictions, I’ve said right from day one I don’t want to have these restrictions in for one day longer than we need to,” Premier Steven Marshall said today.

He said the rules are reviewed every fortnight and will be eased in stages, so long as cases do not skyrocket and the hospital system is able to cope.

Mr Marshall also said when people go back to work “we are very strongly recommending that people wear masks indoors now”.

“This is still a highly-transmissible variant,” he added.

Seven people died with COVID-19 in South Australia in the past 24 hours.

ATAGI is anticipated to deliver its verdict on the definition of “fully vaccinated” today, as premiers and the Federal Government remain at odds over entry requirements for tourists.
