Health Minister Stephen Wade said putting the students into isolation had already reduced the risk within the school community.

"We'll be working with the schools to see what assistance we can give to the schools to provide testing," he said.

"For example, we've got 11 mobile testing vans; it may well be that one or more of the vans will go to one or more of the schools to make it as easy as possible."

In the other case, Mr Wade said the girl was meant to get tested on July 27, but was only tested on July 31 following a police check.

"All the information provided to me through SA Health and provided to police is that she was self-isolating," he said.

Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier said she was worried by the new cases.

"I've been concerned with now a case every day and now two cases," she said.

SA has six active cases and 70 close contacts being monitored.

He has been charged with failing to comply with a direction and will face the Mt Gambier Magistrates Court today.

The Opposition wants mandatory testing at every Victorian border crossing, including for essential travellers like truck drivers.

"It only takes one person to get across the border and spread this disease before we end up in a situation like Victoria," Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas said.

He attended Thebarton Senior College last Thursday but only spoke to staff.

He said SA Health had cleared him as a close contact.
