Covid: South Australia goes on high alert after first outbreak in months

"For me I can go to commentary in three or four years' time if need be, but for me at the moment I just want to play as much cricket as I can while I still can and thankfully, I'm fit enough to be still going".

Arrivals must self-quarantine "in a suitable premise" for 14 days.

"It is a very, very risky situation we're in", state Premier Steven Marshall said Monday, urging residents to get tested if they had symptoms.

"We will monitor the position in South Australia very closely and will strengthen measures if required".

Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young has urged any Queenslander who recently arrived from Adelaide to get tested and to isolate themselves.

But Education Minister Dan Tehan said on Sunday (Nov 15) Australia's triumph in reining in Covid-19 while infections surge in many parts of the world is making the country a "victim of our own success", as Australians overseas want to come home.

Snap restrictions to curb a coronavirus outbreak in South Australia complicated preparations for India's blockbuster cricket tour Monday, with Australian captain Tim Paine reportedly forced into isolation and questions raised over the first Test in Adelaide.

"To be honest I'm not sure how that might affect us in a few weeks when we're due to go over there", he said. However, NSW will not close its borders.

There are now 19 active COVID-19 cases in SA.

Hobart Hurricanes have completed their domestic signings with the addition of Australian Test captain Tim Paine for the Big Bash League season 10.

The borders of Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Region have been sealed since Monday night and people from Adelaide are being quarantined at the hotel for 14 days in view of the fast growing corona virus cases in Adelaide.

"We have stood up the aged care response centre in South Australia".

The India squad and the Australia players who were at the Indian Premier League are now undergoing 14 days quarantine in Sydney.

WA Premier Mark McGowan said its health experts consulted with SA Health and ordered the changes immediately in light of the latest outbreak in SA. By Monday, case numbers had jumped to 17.

It comes after three people outside of hotel quarantine tested positive to the virus.

A woman in her 50s and man in his 60s were later tested and on Sunday also found to be infected.
