South Australia's streak of recording at least one new case of COVID-19 among returned travellers has been extended to six days.

Three new cases were confirmed by SA Health on Sunday, with two men and a woman - all in their 20s - testing positive in hotel quarantine after recently returning from overseas.

As two of the cases are old infections, they won't be added to SA's tally of 19 active infections.

SA hasn't had a day without a new infection since Monday, with 14 hotel quarantine cases reported in the last six days.

That included Thursday's five new infections which represented the state's biggest daily spike in COVID-19 cases for almost seven months.

There were 1946 tests conducted across SA on Saturday, bringing its total number across the pandemic to 572,618.
