Riverland residents are being reminded to use the QR Code Safe Check-In system when attending businesses across the Riverland.
Member for Chaffey Tim Whetstone praised the community, while reminding residents to remain vigilant and continue to do the right thing.
“I’m pleased to see the overwhelming majority doing the right thing and using the QR Code system while they are out and about at businesses and venues,” Mr Whetstone said. “It’s important that we keep up the good work and we don’t become complacent.”
“Across the state, many businesses and individuals have received cautions and if you are blatantly ignoring the Public Activities Direction, you could be stung with a $1060 fine.”
“Local customers, visitors and businesses all have an obligation to do their part and ensure we are prepared for potential COVID-19 cases.”
“The recent outbreaks in Victoria highlights the importance of an effective tracking system, should we see any outbreaks here in South Australia.”
“Contact tracing is one of the best tools in controlling COVID-19 and everyone, businesses and customers alike, have a responsibility to keep our community safe.”
“I strongly encourage businesses to download the free SA Government QR code and for customers to use the COVID Safe Check-In.”
“We have done extremely well in the Riverland with COVID-19 principles, but complacency is our biggest risk, so it’s vital we all keep on track.”
"This is the best way to avoid further disruptions as much as possible, and an efficient contact tracing through contact registers will help.”
