The situation with COVID-19 has developed rapidly in South Australia and around the world.
I know that many people are anxious about what lies ahead. I want to reassure each and every one of you that the health and wellbeing of South Australians is the government’s number one priority and we have a strong plan to help minimise and slow the spread of coronavirus in our state.
The government is focused on:
- Protecting South Australians
- Slowing the spread of the virus
- Preparing health and other services to deal with the virus
- Supporting business to keep people in jobs
I know this is a difficult time, but we are doing everything in our power to protect South Australians and ensure our state emerges stronger and more resilient on the other side.
