The South Australia Government has created the tools and information below to keep our community COVID safe.

COVID SAfe Check-In

South Australia has implemented the COVID SAfe Check-In to help keep our community COVID safe.

If someone in South Australia tests positive to COVID-19, the COVID SAfe Check-In enables SA Health to quickly contact others who may have been exposed to the virus and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Please download the COVID SAfe Check-In app and scan in wherever you see a QR code displayed.

Everyday precautions

Practising good hygiene is the first step in preventing the spread of infectious diseases:

  • wash your hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry them with a paper towel or a hand dryer. Alternatively use alcohol-based hand sanitisers
  • try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth
  • cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • stay home if you’re unwell to avoid making others sick.

Physical distancing

Avoid close contact and crowded places wherever you can:

  • keep at least 1.5 metres distance from others wherever and whenever possible
  • avoid hugging and kissing
  • swap handshakes for a wave
  • turn face to face interactions into phone or video conference calls
  • consider working/studying from home
  • pay using tap-and-go instead of cash.
