NSW Health was advised yesterday (Thursday 10 June) of further venues of concern after two confirmed cases of COVID-19 travelled through regional NSW while potentially infectious. The cases drove from Melbourne to the Sunshine Coast, stopping at places in Gillenbah, Forbes, Dubbo, Coonabarabran and Moree. They signed in to several venues using QR codes.

If you were at any of the following newly listed venues of concern at the times listed, please immediately call NSW Health on 1800 943 553, get tested and isolate until you receive further information from NSW Health:

NSW Health is continuing to investigate the movements of these cases in regional NSW, and this list of venues and times will be updated. NSW Health has identified 355 contacts as part of its investigations to date.

NSW Health reminds people to check the NSW Health website regularly for the full list of venues and public health advice, as the health advice for venues may be updated.

Anyone who resides, works in or has visited these areas since 1 June is asked to be especially vigilant for the onset of even the mildest of cold-like symptoms and is urged to come forward for testing immediately if they appear, then isolate until a negative result is received.

To support increased testing for the communities living or working in these areas, NSW Health is providing the following pop-up testing clinics:

  • Dubbo Showground, Wingewarra Street, 8am to 4pm
  • Forbes Showground, Show Street, 9am to 5pm
  • North Parkes Oval, Alexandra Street, Parkes,10am to 5pm
  • Coonabarabran drive through pop-up clinic, Crane Street, 10.30am – 5pm.

Hours have also been extended at the following existing clinics:

  • Moree District Hospital, Community Health, Picone Building, 35 Alice Street, Moree, 8.15am‑6pm, seven days a week
  • Parkes Hospital drive-through clinic, 2 Morrisey Way, Parkes, 8.30am-5pm, 10-13 June.

NSW Health has lifted the stay-at-home order for people in NSW who have been in Victoria since 4pm on Thursday 27 May. The order no longer applies from today, in line with the Victorian Government’s decision to lift its stay-at-home measures.

However, a number of COVID-19 restrictions remain in place in Victoria, including that metropolitan Melbourne residents must not travel more than 25km from their home unless for work, education, care or getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Victorian residents must continue to follow their Government’s rules while in Victoria.

Anyone who is permitted to enter NSW from Victoria under the Victorian Health Orders, with the exception of those in the defined border region, must complete a travel declaration that confirms they have not attended a venue of concern.

The declaration form is available on the Service NSW website, and can be completed in the 24-hour period before entering NSW or on arrival. The information gathered via the travel declarations is vital in allowing NSW Health to contact travellers if necessary.

NSW Health was notified on Wednesday 9 June that fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 were detected in the Castle Hill Sewage Network.

This is the second recent detection in this catchment, after COVID fragments were notified in the Castle Hill Sewage Network on the evening of Sunday 6 June.

This catchment includes about 8,400 people and takes sewage from the suburbs of Glenhaven, Dural, Kenthurst, Kellyville and Castle Hill.

People who have recently recovered from COVID-19 can continue to shed virus fragments into the sewerage system for several weeks even after they are no longer infectious.

NSW Health thanks the Castle Hill community for coming forward for testing, and continues to ask people in these areas to be especially vigilant in monitoring for symptoms. If they appear, please get tested and isolate immediately until a negative result is received.

There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic, visit COVID-19 clinics or contact your GP.

NSW Health is treating 26 COVID-19 cases, none of whom are in intensive care. Most cases (96 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
