[Media Release: COVID-19 update 14 February 2020]

21 South Australians are currently awaiting test results for COVID-19. Two test results returned positive on Saturday 1 February.

The two confirmed cases of COVID-19 have today been discharged from the Royal Adelaide Hospital following multiple negative tests. There is no risk to the public as they have been fully cleared of the virus.

Patients should continue to present to their GP if they are displaying any symptoms and have recently returned from mainland China, or have been in close contact with someone who is a confirmed case. Importantly, patients should call ahead first so their GP can prepare for their visit.

In line with Commonwealth advice, this is also a strong that maintaining self-isolation at home for 14 days from the last date of exposure for the following groups of people is a must:
• Anyone who has returned from mainland China on or after Saturday 1 February 2020.
• Anyone who has recently returned from Hubei Province.
• Anyone who has been in close contact with a known confirmed case.
• Anyone being specifically tested for COVID-19 while awaiting results.

COVID-19 is a controlled notifiable condition under the South Australian Public Health Act 2011. Doctors and diagnostic laboratories are required to notify the Communicable Disease Control Branch of any suspected cases.
