SkyCity Adelaide reopens as South Australia  reverses imposed lockdown

An Australian pizza worker's lie created havoc in Adelaide causing the city to go into lockdown

The South Australian Government, having announced a strict six day lockdown last week after a cluster of new COVID-19 cases, in Adelaide, swiftly reversed the decision on Saturday, that saw SkyCity Entertainment reopen SkyCity Adelaide just three days after closing following the removal of lockdown restrictions.

SkyCity said its Adelaide casino will open on Sunday to certain Premier membership tiers, with a number of restrictions. All other businesses in Adelaide will also reopen on Sunday.

"The casino will return to operating under a limited and further tightly controlled model, adhering to the Government Directions Notice. Unfortunately our main gaming floor will be temporarily closed to the public until further restrictions ease."

Last Week, SkyCity announced the launch of its AU$330 million SkyCity Adelaide expansion Skycitydevelopment, including the 120-room luxury hotel. Due to lockdown rules being lifted, the project will be pushed back to open at an earlier date.

As reported by the BBC, the sudden change follows revelations that an infected Adelaide pizza shop worker,  claimed that he only bought pizza from the shop. The pizza worker failed to mention that he worked at the pizza place, Woodville Pizza Bar, and therefore, authorities assumed that he caught the virus from very brief exposure, making health authorities think that the strain was a highly contagious one.
