South Australia has added tougher border restrictions to regional Victoria after a woman tested positive for Covid.

The Mount Gambier woman was visiting family in Victoria when she contracted the virus and is currently in hospital with serious respiratory symptoms.

All passengers on board the flight JQ778 are in quarantine, and the woman’s four teenage children tested negative and are isolating at home.

As a result, our travel bubble with regional Victoria reduced on Sunday night from 70kms to 30kms, anyone crossing the border must be tested weekly.

While a requirement for residents crossing the border to have at least one dose of the vaccine is expected to be enforced later this week.
