Is the emergency department the best place for you?

If not, there are other options

Staff isolation


Staff isolation

From Friday 14 October 2022, isolation requirements were lifted for people who test positive to COVID-19. People are instead encouraged to stay at home and take steps to protect others.

Transitional requirements are in place to continue to protect the health and safety of persons receiving health care and SA Health staff delivering services as part of the public health response.

All SA Health staff, contractors, and volunteers who test positive to COVID-19 are directed to:

> Notify their manager and discuss work arrangements.

> Not attend the workplace for 7 days for the purpose of undertaking employment related duties.

> Follow local workplace policies and protocols.

All SA Health employees, contractors and volunteers who are close contacts are directed to notify their manager and seek permission to return to the workplace.

It is also recommended close contacts:

> Wear a mask in the workplace for at least 7 days or as directed by your workplace.

> Stay home and get tested if symptoms develop.

> Follow local workplace policies and protocols - this may include rapid antigen testing requirements.

If you test positive you need to inform your line manager and complete the CALHN self-isolation reporting form.

You will need to remain away from the workplace for 7 days, and may access COVID Special Leave with Pay. See here for further information.
