Adelaide residents have started panic-buying in supermarkets after Premier Steven Marshall announced a six-day coronavirus lockdown.

As it was announced at about 1pm, Woolworths and Coles stores rapidly filled up with long queues as residents stocked up on food and supplies.

South Australia police chief Grant Stevens said panic buying was not necessary but admitted he expected it to happen.

He has put police on 'stand-by' to deal with any 'civil disorder' at stores.

'I don't think people will listen and I do think people will flood the supermarkets,' he said.

'If you are going shopping, think about other people, treat each other with respect and kindness, we are all in the same boat and think of those who are working on the supermarkets, doing it tough and they will be inundated over the next few days and if we have to take action to protect those people, then we will do so.'

Premier Marshall urged residents not to panic buy, saying: 'There is no point going off to the supermarket this afternoon.

'Supermarkets and the supply lines will be remaining open.'
