If you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, you can access two free rapid antigen tests (RAT) from RAT Collection Points across the state.

💻You must register on the SA Health website to collect your kit: www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/COVIDRapidAntigenTesting

In SA, a close contact is defined as:
▪️a household member or intimate partner of a COVID-19 case during their infectious period
▪️someone who has had close personal interaction with a COVID-19 case during their infectious period
▪️someone who has been notified by SA Health that they are a close contact
▪️someone who has been to an exposure site during the exposure period for that site.

Close personal interaction with a COVID-19 case is an interaction:
▪️for 15 minutes or more AND
▪️where masks are not worn by the person or the COVID-19 case AND
▪️in close physical proximity AND
▪️in an indoor setting

🔵If you are a close contact living in the same house as someone who has tested positive to COVID-19 and cannot appropriately quarantine away from them, you must quarantine for 14 days from the date they had their test taken. You do not need to have a COVID-19 PCR test unless you develop any symptoms.

If you test positive to COVID-19 at any time during your quarantine period, you need to isolate for 10 days.

🔵If you are close contact not living in the same house as a positive case, or if you are in the same house but can appropriately quarantine them, you must:
▪️quarantine for 7 days since exposure (day of exposure is day 0)
▪️get an initial COVID-19 test
▪️get a COVID-19 test again on day 6 after exposure (a negative day 6 test is required to be released from quarantine)
▪️get a COVID-19 test again immediately if symptoms develop
▪️not attend high risk settings or COVID Management Plan events for 14 days after exposure
▪️wear a surgical mask when around others
▪️avoid contact with vulnerable people (young children, elderly, pregnant, people with chronic health conditions), avoid non-essential activities, avoid working across worksites and avoid shared spaces and maintain physical distancing on days 8 to 14 after exposure.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms and test negative on a RAT, you must get a PCR test to confirm this result.

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms while in quarantine, use a RAT if you have one. If you don’t have access to any more RATs, get a PCR test. If you don’t have access to a RAT for your day 6 test, get a PCR test.

Explaining COVID-19 vaccination to your child can be difficult.

Our handy resources help to explain COVID-19 vaccination. You can use them to help start a conversation with your child or your child can learn more information themselves.

📖Your child can find out how to become a vaccinated superhero with our ‘How to protect yourself from COVID-19’ book: bit.ly/3fb4HEl

✅You can also use the fact sheet for children aged 5 to 11 to help start a conversation: bit.ly/3HTwyVR

In South Australia we will continue to include ‘close contacts’ as:
▪ household and household-like contacts and intimate partners
▪ those who have been in a setting where there has been significant transmission of COVID-19 (and there has been greater than 15 minutes face-to-face contact)
▪ those in high-risk communities/settings/workplaces where someone has tested positive to COVID-19 (and there has been greater than 15 minutes of face-to-face contact)

Most close contacts will receive an SMS from SA Health. However, if you know you are a close contact, please do not wait for the SMS – get tested and isolate immediately.

If someone you have been in close contact with tells you they have tested positive to COVID-19, you must follow the advice below.

Unvaccinated and vaccinated close contacts must:
▪ immediately quarantine for 7 days since they had contact with a COVID-19 positive person or were at the exposure location
▪ get an initial PCR test
▪ get a PCR test again on day 6 if initial test negative (a negative day 6 PCR test is required to be released from quarantine)
▪ get a PCR test again immediately if symptoms develop (be mindful of symptoms for up to 14 days)
▪ not attend high risk settings or COVID Management Plan events for 14 days after exposure
▪ wear a surgical mask when around others
▪ avoid contact with vulnerable people, avoid non-essential activities where possible and avoid shared spaces and maintain physical distancing on days 8 to 14 after exposure.

Do not attend an Emergency Department, unless it is an emergency.

In an emergency or if you have symptoms such as difficulty breathing or chest pain, call Triple Zero (000).
