South Australia recorded two new coronavirus cases, both from repatriated Aussies in hotel quarantine.
The new border rules came into effect at midnight last night, though there still are some conditions on entry: visitors will need to get tested on days one, five, and 12 of their stay.

“The current hard border arrangements with those high community transmission zones in and around Sydney will remain for the time being, but we will continue to look at those on a daily basis,” Premier Steven Marshall said, according to news.com.au.
There will, at this stage, be no change to the border restrictions in place for those coming from Greater Brisbane, however.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to lift those restrictions in the coming days, but we don’t want to go one or two days too early and then have a catastrophe on our hands,” Mr. Marshall said.
“I know it’s been hugely inconvenient and I know people were hoping that we could do that yesterday or today, but we’re not in a position at the moment… There are still several worrying concerns there. There is still more testing to be done.”
