South Australia Imposes Harsher COVID-19 Penalties

By Jessie Zhang


Under new laws in South Australia, anyone found breaching COVID-19 rules could be handed a two year jail term or a $20,000 ($US14,041) penalty, while businesses could be fined up to $75,000.

Instances of not complying include ignoring vaccine mandates or refusing to wear a face mask when visiting high-risk settings such as hospitals, disability care, and nursing homes.

The government is set to pass laws that will extend its powers to impose vaccination and mask mandates in specific industries for at least the next six months.

Labor Premier Peter Malinauskas said that the Greens and SA-BEST are onboard with the new laws.
