BREAKING: South Australia to end hard lockdown three days early




South Australia will come out of hard lockdown on Saturday night — three days early — and outdoor exercise with family or housemates will be allowed “effective immediately”.

Premier Steven Marshall thanked South Australians for “their spirit” during this lockdown, which only allowed people to leave their homes once a day to obtain essential goods.

“One of the close contact linked to the Woodville Pizza Bar deliberately misled the contact tracing team,” he said.

“We know now that they lied.

“I will not let the disgraceful conduct of a single individual keep SA in these circuit breaker conditions one day longer than what is necessary.

“However, this lie still means that our contact tracers need breathing space to contact people, but not for as long.”

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said from midnight Saturday, groups of up to 50 people will be allowed at private functions and funerals, up to 10 people can go to a private residence and up to 100 people can attend a pub or restaurant with certain restrictions in place.
