South Australia will end its hard lockdown early.
South Australia will emerge from their hard lockdown at midnight on Saturday after a person closely linked to a COVID-19 outbreak in Adelaide lied to contact tracers.
Speaking to media, South Australia Premier Steven Marshall said investigations had revealed one of the closed contacts linked to a positive case in a worker at an Adelaide pizza bar misled the contract tracing team.
The person had told authorities that they had only purchased a pizza from the shop when in fact they had worked several shifts at the location.
