Returning SA residents can now undertake 14 Day Quarantine stuck on South Road on way home from airport

With border restrictions rapidly easing and/or increasing between many Australian states, one new local initiative gives returning South Australian residents a new quarantine option when returning home.

In the latest push for a safe quarantine option, SA’s Deputy-Chief Quarantine Intern, Delta Strayn has announced the trial of the new “South Road Quarantine” option, in which people will be able to self-isolate in their cars on the commute to their house from Adelaide Airport.

‘We have a unique situation here in South Australia’, stated Strayn ‘For most metropolitan commuters the trip from Adelaide Airport to any residential residence along South Road takes AT LEAST 14 full days anyway, so we figured we could make the most of this’.

‘For the past 30 odd years the SA Government has worked very hard to ensure this road is a purpose built two-week quarantine station. Throw in some roadworks, a minor prang and someone trying to turn right near Castle Plaza instead of going to the nearby set of lights and we can ensure that people are self isolated for an extended amount of time’.

When Adelaide Mail asked Strayn about the logistics of this whole thing, such as fuel, food and toilet breaks, Strayn immediately wrapped up the interview saying she had to immediately leave her CBD office to attend a 10:30 meeting at Clovelly Park in November.
