People providing personal services like hair cuts and tattoos will have to wear a face mask. People are being encouraged to work from home if they can and to wear a face mask if they can't socially distance while in public.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: "We are supporting South Australia in every way that we can and they are aware of that, but I have got to say they have got a lot of people who have moved into isolation.

"They are running down the contacts. We have stood up the aged care response centre in South Australia."

A new update was issued this morning (November 17) saying only one new case of Covid-19 has been recorded after thousands of people were tested in a huge blitz yesterday.
