A Covid case in Mildura has sparked concern in the Riverland, setting off a number of changes in South Australia.

Yesterday the Mildura case was confirmed, with the man at last weekend’s Carlton V Geelong match at the MCG.  

Anyone who has been in the Mildura Local Government area on and since the 11th of July is required to quarantine and undergo covid testing.

Some of the changes to border travel include the Victorian bubble shrinking to 40km from the previous 70km,  as well the NSW bubble now excluding a number of towns with Wentworth now off the cards.

In an update last night from SAPOL & SA Health they encouraged people to limit their travel in and out of the Riverland and those who have been in the Riverland are urged to seek testing for even the mildest of symptoms.

The list of exposure sites in the Sunraysia continues to grow including a number of cafe's & service stations in Mildura.
