Premier Steven Marshall said on Friday that he would loosen the state's restrictions because one man at a pizza bar linked to a cluster of new cases told contact tracers he had only bought a pizza when he actually worked at the shop.
South Australia Premier Steven Marshall said the state had learned from watching Victoria and other parts of the world.
Unable to get a flight home in time to beat the Tuesday quarantine lockout, Ms Fuller said she couldn't trust "the sporadic government border decisions" and had to risk heading straight home.
South Australia chose to enter a state-wide lockdown after learning a man with Covid-19 had lied about his link to a pizza shop, police say.
South Australia will end its "circuit breaker" lockdown tonight, three days earlier than officially planned, after it was discovered that a man connected to a recent outbreak lied to contact tracers.
South Australia had a 99 per cent chance of enduring a "significant wave" of COVID-19 if the state had not gone into recent lockdown, according to modelling.
How did authorities find out that the man had lied?However, when another team reviewed the information obtained during the interview, they found that there were many glaring holes in the answers he had provided.
"I know that many South Australians would be absolutely delighted that the stay-at-home order has now been released. We are interested in speaking to at least two other people who we believe can assist us with our inquiries, and my investigators will remain in contact with those in due course", he said.
Will the man face criminal charges?
"To say I care about this person's actions is an absolute understatement", Marshall later said.
But that would not include police action against the man because there was "no penalty associated with telling lies", said South Australia Police Commissioner Grant Stevens.
'This selfish actions of this individual have put our whole state in a very hard situation. "We are taking a fair and objective approach to this, we don't go in with preconceived ideas from an investigative point of view".
Will the restrictions be revoked completely?On Friday, the ban on outdoor exercise and dog walking was lifted when the news of an infected pizza shop worker came out.
SA's Chief Public Health Officer Professor Nicola Spurrier said the case - a woman in her 20s who was in hotel quarantine - was nothing to be be concerned about in relation to community transmission.
