I knowing times like this can be challenging, but I hope the forum is surviving.

If anything hopefully forums like this can provide an constructive outlet for all.

Good luck to all over the next 3 to 6 months.

Well, it will take more than a pesky virus to wipe S-A out. Together we will win and be stronger than before.

Hope the same for everyone.

Looking forward to a vaccine.

Anyone feeling unwell with flu-like symptoms can now be tested for coronavirus over the next fortnight under an official COVID-19 testing “blitz” after South Australia recorded zero new cases.

The State Government announced on Wednesday a significant widening of SA’s world-leading testing regime.

Under new relaxed rules from Thursday, any person showing symptoms such as a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath can be tested.

I suppose we should put everything in here instead of clogging up the Beer Garden..

I think we will see a spike in cases now.

We either get a spike in detected cases, presumably contacts of (asymptomatic or very mild) contacts of known cases, or we get a higher degree of confidence that the virus has been contained.

Hopefully, it is the latter, which is suggested by the fact that we are not getting a bunch of hospital cases that are not directly connected to existing known patients.

It's still very early days, but I have my fingers crossed on the chance that we have actually managed to contain it in SA. If we do manage to get to that point it would raise some really interesting options about tightly managing the state border and being able to open up more locally as a test case for the rest of the country.

Expect an announcement this week or next regarding the state border.
