This announcement came after a man tested positive for COVID-19 in Mildura and COVID-19 exposure sites were found in central Victoria such as bakery in Wycheproof and a petrol station in Ravenswood.
Those residing in the 40km border bubble may enter South Australia for the following reasons:
- Employment or education
- Providing care and support or receiving care and support from another person
- Obtaining food, petrol or other fuel or medical care or supplies
- Obtaining COVID-19 vaccination.

If residents of the border community need to travel into SA they must receive a COVID-19 test on day one, five, and 13 unless they can produce evidence of a COVID-19 test or a negative COVID-19 result within the previous 7 days.
Residents of the VIC/SA border community must also wear a face mask at any time that they come into contact with the public for a period of 14 days after their arrival in South Australia.
They must remain in the cross border corridor while not in South Australia (i.e. do not travel beyond 40km of the South Australian border into broader Victoria for any purpose) and have not, during the period of 14 days before entering South Australia from the Victorian cross border corridor, been associating (in person) with persons from broader Victoria or other restricted zones outside of the cross border corridor.
Residents who travel beyond the cross border corridor will need apply as a permitted arrival or essential traveller on return.
