As Naracoorte shuts down for the statewide, six day "circuit breaker" lockdown, Naracoorte Lucindale Mayor Erika Vickery urges residents to look after themselves and each other.
"The last time we had restrictions and lock down, although it was not as strict as this one, our community was really very compliant and heeded the directions that were given to us," she said
"We are just asking for people to do that same again, and to be patient and kind to each other again.
"We are all in this together, and we need to support each other the best we can so we can take care of our anxieties and our mental health as well as our physical health.
"If people are feeling anxious, they should make sure they can get on the phone and have a chat with someone, because everyone is probably feeling that anxiety and we will have to work our way through it."
She said that although the lockdown was tough, she understood the need for it.
"I know people are questioning why is it all across the state and not just in Adelaide, like they did in Victoria, but I do understand that up until this last weekend, we were encouraging people to move around SA and there were a lot of people who came from Adelaide or went to Adelaide and came back," she said.
"I understand that we all need to work together in this."
A majority of council's locations and services will be shut down with only staff required for essential services working.
