Revocation of Reporting on COVID-19 Testing and Use of PCR Tests Directions – 13 May 2022

13 May 2022 3:10pm

The following Directions have been revoked, effective 11.09am on 13 May 2022:

  • Emergency Management (Reporting on COVID-19 Testing No 3) (COVID-19) Direction 2022; and
  • Emergency Management (Use of PCR Tests) (COVID-19) Direction 2022.
  • The above Directions are no longer required as South Australia transitions into the next phase of managing the pandemic.

    The directions outlined the following:

  • The Emergency Management (Reporting on COVID-19 Testing No 3) Direction 2021 imposed obligations on a pathology laboratory to report information to SA Health. These requirements are now managed outside of the Emergency Management Direction.
  • This does NOT apply to the public, only to pathology laboratories. The public is still required to report their Rapid Antigen Test results on the SA Health website.

  • The Emergency Management (Use of PCR Tests) (COVID-19) Direction 2022 was issued to manage demand on PCR testing.  Due to the change in circumstance the direction is no longer relevant.
  • All existing directions, frequently asked questions and other information can be found here: https://www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/emergency-declarations

    If you require further information you can call the SA COVID-19 Information Line on 1800 253 787 between the hours of 8am to 8pm 7 days per week or go to the SA Health website at www.sahealth.sa.gov.au or www.sa.gov.au/covid-19

    Note: The SA COVID-19 Information Line hours change on 14 May 2022 to 9am to7pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 5pm on weekends and public holidays.
