Late on Tuesday, SA Health listed a handful of new high-risk exposure sites across metropolitan Adelaide including two schools – Westminster School at Marion and St Ann’s College in North Adelaide.
A McDonalds at Felixstow and a Woolworths at Marryatville were also among the latest retail and hospitality venues put on alert.
Anyone who visited the venues must now quarantine for 14 days, immediately get tested and again on days five and 13.
The outbreak has already plunged thousands of people into quarantine, and Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier urged everyone, especially those in quarantine, to stay home.
“The virus doesn’t have legs, it moves around when people move around,” she said.
“So if people stay put we will be able to get on top of it.”

The outbreak has grown to at least five confirmed infections, with all of those currently linked to an 81-year-old man who came to Australia recently from Argentina.
During the week-long lockdown, South Australians will only be allowed out for five reasons – to provide essential care, to seek medical assistance, to buy essential food and other goods, for essential work, or to exercise for up to 2.5 hours.
They must also wear masks when outside their homes.
Schools have closed along with most retail outlets and all construction work has ceased.
