SA Health restriction advice for ACCHS

Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services are considered to be ‘high risk settings’. Masks must be worn at all times by staff, visitors and patients.

Close contacts are able to attend ACCHSs for medical care, although it is strongly recommended by SA Health that you let the service know beforehand that you are a close contact. If you personally don’t need medical help or supplies, you should not attend an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service for 7 days after you have been exposed.

People who test positive should follow the SA Health advice. After leaving isolation, on days 8-10 after testing positive they should not go into Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services.

There are no longer any density requirements in health services, but it is recommended that people maintain greater than 1.5metre distance apart where possible. Check-in, such as via a QR code, are required for hospitals, disability care facilities and aged care facilities in South Australia.

See mandatory vaccine requirements for healthcare workers (below).

As always, exposure sites across South Australia will continue to be updated on the SA Health website and if there is an outbreak in the South Australian community, it is recommended that this webpage be checked regularly for new information: SA Health | SA Contact Tracing and Exposure Locations
