SA exposure sites: Coles supermarket, Caltex, Dan Murphy’s among new Adelaide COVID-19 venues on alert
South Australian authorities have added several more venues to the exposure sites list before tough level 4 restrictions take effect from Tuesday morning.
The measures were announced after the state’s cluster of coronavirus cases grew to three.
An 81-year-old man and two of his close contacts, a man and a woman in their 50s, have tested positive for the virus.
The woman is known to be the elderly man’s daughter.
It’s feared the 81-year-old was infectious in the community for as long as five days.

Level 4 restrictions
New SA restrictions include a density change to one person to every four square metres in all venues, while all team and contact sport is to be cancelled.
All dining will need to be seated with a ban imposed on dancing and singing.
Masks will be required in all indoor public areas, including shopping malls.
Fitness centres will be closed along with other non-essential retail outlets. Supermarkets and pharmacies and other essential businesses will continue to trade.
Family gatherings will be restricted to 10 people but schools will stay open.
The new rules will apply from midnight on Monday and will be reviewed on Friday.
Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said while SA was not moving to a full lockdown, the restrictions were significant.
“We know there are people who will struggle as a result of these changes. But the consequences of not taking action could be even more severe,” he said.
“The intent here is to dramatically suppress all discretionary activity in the community.”
Authorities said earlier that the elderly man had returned to Australia through NSW, where he spent 14 days in quarantine.
He spent a further 10 days in hospital in NSW after suffering a fall before returning to SA on July 8, and presented to a suburban hospital over the weekend after developing symptoms.
The man had received one vaccine dose while in Argentina, but it was not known what type.
He has been admitted to hospital with Adelaide’s other positive cases transferred to the Tom’s Court Hotel which is used to quarantine all those with an active infection.
“We don’t draw any conclusions as to where this infection came from. We simply don’t know and it is very early days,” Mr Marshall said.
