South Australian police have revealed almost $65,000 in fines were handed out over just two days of Adelaide’s short-lived COVID-19 lockdown.

Premier Steven Marshall announced on Friday the state’s six-day “circuit breaker” shutdown would be cut to just three after it was revealed the decision to impose the tough restrictions was based on a lie.

But that revelation did not mean South Australians were off the hook.

SA Police says 103 cautions were issued on Thursday and Friday for breaches of the state’s ‘Stay at Home’ directions.

A further 60 $1,080 fines were handed out to individuals and businesses caught doing the wrong thing.
