Viva Painters Adelaide COVID-19 Update

As vaccines for the coronavirus are rolled out, the city of Adelaide is beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel. While things are looking a bit better, it’s a tenuous and uncertain state with new variants of the virus coming out. We find ourselves in a wait-and-see situation.

Whatever the developments, we continue to encourage everyone to remain cautious and practice social distancing and good hygiene whenever and wherever the situation demands it.

What Can You Do To Stop The Spread?

Despite city restrictions easing, we should still be on guard against the virus by:

Practicing Good Hygiene

If you’re in a public space, we strongly recommend you carry a hand sanitizer with you at all times. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and wipe down surfaces periodically.

If you’re not well or show the slightest indication that you have the virus, stay home and get tested for COVID-19 as soon as you can. This will allow you to get the required medical treatment on time without infecting others.

Social Distancing

When outside, the six-foot physical distancing measures we previously implemented may be difficult to maintain. If it isn’t possible to maintain this distance, try to give each other at least 1.5 meters of physical space.

In case a 1.5-meter distance is still impossible to maintain, we suggest wearing a face mask and avoiding skin-to-skin contact. Even if you don’t have skin-to-skin contact with someone else, you should still wear a face mask as recommended by SA Heath.

COVID-19 Drive-Through Testing

The city of Adelaide has COVID-19 drive-through testing available in Victoria Park/Pakapankathi. The facility’s access is limited to Wakefield Road (left-hand turn only) for cars and motorbikes.

Take note that bookings may be required and it can take some time to get tested so come prepared with snacks and water. You can visit the SA website for more information about getting tested.

Pulling Together as One Community

If you need to refresh yourself on the newest guidelines, we encourage you to visit the SA Health website. Stay informed and up-to-date on the latest news and recommendations from our government.

We look forward to continuing working with you in the years to come as we recover from COVID and the many ways it has affected us as one.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.
