Important Coronavirus (COVID-19) update for MTA members

Public news

STAY AT HOME - SOUTH AUSTRALIA AT LEVEL FIVE RESTRICTIONS


From 6pm Tuesday 20 July 2021 level five restrictions will be in place for 7 days. A Stay at Home requirement will be enforced and there are limited reasons for leaving home. These are:

  • Care and compassion grounds
  • Essential work
  • Purchasing essential goods
  • Medical reasons including getting COVID tested or vaccinated.
  • Exercise with those in your household

Under the Emergency Management Activities direction, authorised workers are those carrying out essential work. For our members this includes – vehicle repair and mechanical services, roadside assistance services, truck stops and roadhouses, petrol stations, production and distribution of commercial goods necessary to support these businesses.

This is our best interpretation of the Directions in place at this point in time. We will continue to update as more information becomes available, as well as seek clarification with government about any issues you raise with us.
