The South Australian Government has announced new Covid-19 ‘rules’ post borders opening on the 23rd November.
From that date those fully vaccinated from interstate can come into South Australia without quarantine and the government are expecting cases in the State.
Nicola Spurrier has announced today that once Covid-19 is in SA businesses should consider if they want fully vaccinated staff, and to even consider if they will allow unvaccinated patrons and clients to enter their business. If staff are not fully vaccinated the business will most likely need to be closed if any staff members come into contact with a positive case, however if all staff are vaccinated they can continue to stay open.
“You might want to start considering whether you want all your staff vaccinated or not, because you might look at what we provided today and think the implications are going to be much worse for me if I don’t have fully vaccinated staff’” she said to reporters today.
This could provide a large incentive for businesses to soon start mandating vaccines even without large state mandates in place in a hope to stay open over the busy holiday period.
