Health authorities have identified new exposure sites in regional South Australia after another truck driver travelling through the state tested positive to COVID-19. 

The truck driver entered the state on Wednesday, October 13 and visited three locations before returning to Victoria. 

SA Health has listed the Bordertown Checkpoint from 6:30am to 11:00am, the Bordertown OTR service station from 10:45am to 11:20am and United Petrol Station at Waikerie from 6:30pm to 7:30pm as tier 2 exposure sites. 

Anyone who visited the locations last Wednesday at the specified times must immediately get tested for COVID-19 and quarantine for 14 days. 

They must also get tested again on day 5 and day 13 after the last day they were at the location. 

Anyone who visited the locations but at different dates and times must monitor themselves for symptoms and get tested as soon as any symptoms develop. 

The man is the sixth truck driver in two weeks to test positive after visiting the state. 

On Thursday, SA Health revealed a truck driver had tested positive to COVID-19 after visiting three exposure sites in SA, including the Big W store at Hallett Cove in Adelaide’s southern suburbs.
