SA Health has added a Victor Harbor restaurant and a pub to its list of COVID-19 exposure sites after a positive case attended the venue.

The Hotel Crown, at the intersection of Ocean Street and Albert Place, and Nino's Cafe, across the road on Albert Place, have been listed as COVID-19 exposure sites on SA Health's website.

As a result, SA Health has extended the opening hours of the COVID-19 testing clinic located at Southern Fleurieu Health Service to 9am to 4.30pm on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

Nino's was first on the exposure list, put on late on Friday night, December 3, while the Crown was added on Saturday afternoon, December 4.

A positive case visited the Crown on Sunday, November 28, and the exposure time is listed as 7.20pm to 8.15pm.

A positive case visited Nino's Restaurant on the same night, and the exposure time is listed as 8.15pm to 9.15pm.

SA Health could not confirm if it was the same person who visited both locations.

It means that anyone who was in the pub or the restaurant at the listed times is now a 'close contact'.

Here's what this means for close contacts, according to SA Health's website. For more information on contact tracing, exposure sites, health advice, and requirements for households, visit www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/COVIDcontacttracing.
