Passengers aboard rows one to four of the Qantas Flight QF733 from Sydney, which arrived at 10:15am on Wednesday, have been ordered to enter isolation and get tested, with unvaccinated travellers subject to 14 days quarantine and vaccinated travellers seven days.

Passengers seated in rows five and above must get tested immediately, quarantine until they receive a negative result, wear a mask when around others, and avoid contact with vulnerable people.

The same rules apply to anyone at the Krispy Kreme at Adelaide Airport between 10:40am to 11:20am on Wednesday.

Anyone at Adelaide Airport between 10:15am to 11:25am on Wednesday, Brighton Central (Foodland, Brighton City Meats, Brighton Fresh Seafoods) between 12:45pm to 1:15pm, and  Brighton Central (Foodland) between 5:00pm to 5:20pm should monitor for symptoms and get tested if any develop.

People at those locations at other times are also encouraged to get tested if they develop symptoms.

It is the first positive case recorded at Adelaide Airport since the borders reopened on Tuesday.

Venues linked to the positive case will be subject to less onerous cleaning requirements introduced at the same time as the reopening of the border.

Updated SA Health advice recommends that “routine cleaning processes are adequate. This can be done overnight so as not to disrupt normal business hours. If premises are notified during business hours, they may need to close for a short time to undertake cleaning.”

The business will only be required to close if they are notified during business hours, if cleaning cannot occur outside business hours, or if there are insufficient staff available to stay open.

Once the clean is complete, the business can re-open without any other requirements, unless advised otherwise.

SA Health were not able to provide any further details about the positive case, with more information to be provided later today.

It follows one case on Wednesday of a young girl who tested positive after travelling with her family by car from Nhill in Victoria to visit relatives in SA.

The family returned to Victoria to quarantine after the child tested positive at Tailem Bend.

Another traveller was found to be “viral shedding” because the person had tested positive some weeks ago in Victoria, but won’t be counted as a SA case.
