There are also two sites in SA's resources and energy sector that have had to instigate COVID-19 protocols as a result of contact tracing from the outbreak known as the Parafield cluster.

On-site contract tracing, precautionary testing and isolation arrangements have been put in play at both sites in line with their approved COVID-19 plans.

Tighter border controls have been implemented for inbound travellers from SA.

Companies with outbound workers have been advised to monitor national travel arrangements.

The first cluster to emerge in SA since April has led the SA government to introduce stricter density restrictions that affect some public activities such as sporting events, weddings, funerals and indoor venues.

Mining and smelting are allowed to go on for continuity purposes and to prevent damage.
