COVID-19 Updates

1 December 2020

From Tuesday 1 December, South Australians will be required to register at public locations by scanning a QR code using the mySA GOV app or by completing a manual form. That will include City of Mitcham Council meetings, community centres and activities defined as a public activity. The app securely collects limited personal information as people enter a public location. Details will only be kept for 28 days and will only be released to SA Health for official contact tracing purposes.

For instructions on how to download the app, available now on Google Play and from Tuesday afternoon on the App Store, visit www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/business-and-work/covid-safe-check-in.

COVID-Safe Plans

From 1 December, all defined public activities must have a completed COVID-Safe Plan. Businesses with a COVID-Safe Plan will receive a new COVID Safe Plan via email that includes a poster with a unique QR code. This should be printed off and displayed in a prominent location within the business. When people arrive at a venue or business, they can check in by scanning the QR code using their smart phone through the mySA Gov app.

Where to get information

SA Health are providing regular updates about COVID-19 on their website and Facebook.

Council will continue to observe all directions and advice issued by the Federal and State Governments regarding COVID-19, as the health and wellbeing of our community is our highest priority.

The virus is spread through contact with droplets produced when an infectious person coughs or sneezes. As a consequence our behaviour is key to preventing spread of the virus and this involves taking personal responsibility, such as regular hygiene practices and social distancing.

These measures are essential to prevent illness and protect all members of our community. Further information can be found here.
