JULY 9 MARKET MEMO

South Australian Produce Market Limited (SAPML) continue to closely monitor the situation in Victoria in relation to COVID-19 and we have placed additional precautions with interstate drivers entering the Market within our Unloading Service.

No interstate driver is permitted to move around the Market. They must stay within their vehicle. Personal Protection Equipment [PEE] will be provided to drivers if they have contact with SAPML staff. We recommend that all Market Patrons adopt the same practice.

As communicated, from Monday, 13 June 2020 access card holders will not be required to complete a Health Screen Form, however, a temperature check will be undertaken and they MUST adhere to the conditions of entry which include:

  • DO NOT ENTER the Market if you have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient in the past 14 days;
  • DO NOT ENTER the Market if you have been in close contact with anyone suspected of having COVID-19 OR has been directed to isolate over the last 14 days;
  • DO NOT ENTER the Market if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    – fever; coughing; sore throat; fatigue; body aches; headache or shortness of breath.
  • DO NOT ENTER the Market if you or anyone in your immediate household is awaiting COVID-19 results.

Cross Border Travel Registrations

There has been much confusion in relation to Border closures overnight and SAPOL have advised that they have received an unprecedented number of Cross Border Travel Registrations.

Consequently, they are currently experiencing a delay in application processing times and wish to advise that all Cross Border Travel Registrations will be processed as quickly as possible.

SAPOL have advised that anyone who has already completed the online Cross Border Travel Registration should commence their travel plans to South Australia and bring all relevant documentation with them.

On arrival in South Australia, travelers will be processed by SAPOL to verify identification and their purpose of travel. Their online Cross Border Travel Registrations will be assessed independently to their entry at the border, airport or port and once assessed, they will be contacted via email or phone to confirm their travel status.

Victorian and South Australian Border Closure

As detailed yesterday, there will be changes to Cross Border Travel between South Australia and Victoria from midnight Wednesday, 8 July 2020.
Unfortunately, SAPML have not received any further information regarding the changes on new Cross Border Direction.

The information we can provide at this time remains the same:

  • only South Australian residents returning from Victoria and essential travelers will be permitted entry into South Australia;
  • returning South Australian residents must quarantine for 14 days upon return;
  • essential travelers must quarantine for 14 days when not undertaking essential tasks and must also wear PPE when in contact with others;
  • cross border residents will be restricted in the number of kilometers they can travel into or out of South Australia;
  • some roads along the South Australian / Victorian border will be closed and there will be increased border check points;
  • SAPOL is consulting with the Australian Defence Force to establish what assistance could be provided if required;
  • restrictions on NSW and ACT travelers remain the same and we are still considering lifting border restrictions with NSW and ACT on 20 July 2020.

SAPML will continue to provide updates and information as soon as it becomes available.

In the meantime, SAPML encourage you to keep checking the Government of South Australia’s COVID-19 website here for updates.
