Many South Australians are anxious about the impacts of the global coronavirus pandemic.

I want to reassure each and every one of you that we have a strong plan to prepare and protect, and ultimately save lives.

By confronting this unprecedented challenge together, we will be able to minimise the impacts of this disease.

My Government will continue to follow the advice of our leading health experts. So far, this has kept South Australia ahead of the curve.

We’ve set up dedicated coronavirus clinics, drive-through testing facilities, and have acted swiftly and decisively to alert South Australians to the threat.

Widespread restrictions will change the way we all live, and what lies ahead may be the most difficult period many South Australians face in their lifetime.

But my message to you is; you are not alone.

We are all in this together.

Through our strong and clear plan, we will maintain the quickest possible pathway to economic rebuilding and recovery.

If we continue to work together and play our part, then I am confident we will come out of this stronger and more resilient.

We will get through this.

Steven Marshall
Premier of South Australia
