Coronavirus (COVID-19) – latest information

A message from the South Australian Tourism Commission
Chief Executive Rodney Harrex:

The South Australian Tourism Commission is continuously monitoring and responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We acknowledge the monumental impact this is having on the tourism industry, not only in our state but worldwide. These challenges we face have never before been seen. 

Decisions to restrict borders, businesses and ensure social distancing measures, are unprecedented and necessary to protect the South Australian community.   

The SATC stands by our sector and is working to do what we can now to support South Australian operators. 

We will come out the other side of this crisis and as soon as we get the green light, the SATC is ready to invest and ensure the sector bounces back stronger than ever before.
