Contact tracers are still working to contain Adelaide’s Parafield cluster with two new COVID-19 cases linked to the outbreak that plunged the state into lockdown.
One case, a man in his 40s, was already self-isolating at the time of testing positive.
The other, a teenage girl from Woodville High School, attended the pizza bar for a “very brief time”, South Australia’s Chief Medical Officer Nicola Spurrier told Today.
“We are still trying to work out how in fact she contracted the disease,” Professor Spurrier said today.

“She had certainly had a very brief time at the Woodville Pizza Bar on the 14th of November and that was the time that we know there were infectious cases there.
“So we are urging every South Australian if you did get a pizza from there to get a test done and stay isolated.”
Sections of the school were forced into lockdown after the student tested positive to COVID-19.
Despite the growing cluster, Professor Spurrier said she wanted the state to enjoy a Christmas as normal as possible.
“I as much as everybody else in South Australia, want to have a normal Christmas,” she said.
“There are going to be some restrictions and my team and I are working through those.”
Virus alert issued for shopping centres
A fresh coronavirus alert has been issued for two shopping centres in the state, believed to be linked to the Parafield cluster.
Anyone who visited Armada Arndale Shopping Centre and Port Adelaide Plaza is being asked to monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if they appear.
