“Working together we’ve been able to demonstrate we can get through this very difficult situation,” Marshall told reporters on Monday.

“We’re absolutely delighted with how the people of South Australia have worked with the restrictions. Everyone has made extraordinary sacrifices this week.

“We said we wanted to go hard, we wanted to go early and we wanted to knock this off.”

Restrictions remain

When the lockdown lifts, SA will keep a range of heightened restrictions including a general density requirement of one person to every four square metres.

Masks will be required in high-risk settings, such as aged care centres, in medical services and on public transport.

The wider use of masks is strongly encouraged.

All food and drink consumption must be while seated and dancing and singing remain banned.

Family gatherings will be limited to 10 people, although weddings and funerals can have up to 50.

Schools will also reopen on Wednesday.

The new restrictions will remain in place for at least a week.

On top of the continuing measures, the premier urged all people to strongly consider their need to move around, with working from home a preferred option.
