South Australia's cluster of COVID-19 cases has grown to 17 after the state recorded its first locally acquired case in almost three months on Sunday.

South Australia's Chief Health Officer, Nicola Spurrier, confirmed on Monday morning the cluster had risen from four.

The cluster began when a woman in her 80s tested positive for the virus on Saturday.

Two family members were also part of the initial cluster, including a man in his 60s who works in hotel quarantine for returning travellers. SA Health believes that is the source of the outbreak.

On Sunday afternoon, passengers landing in Perth from Adelaide were forced into quarantine after Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan reinstated restrictions on South Australia.
