In South Australia, you will be required to self isolate or quarantine for 14 days if you:
- have arrived from overseas

During these 14 days, you must stay at home or in your hotel room and not leave unless you require urgent medical care.
This currently applies to all travellers (international and Australian), including South Australian citizens.
Non-compliance will result in a maximum penalty of $20,000.
