NSW Health continues to remind people to check the NSW Health website regularly for the full list of venues associated with two confirmed cases of COVID-19 who travelled through regional NSW while potentially infectious. The health advice for some of these venues has been updated.

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.

Anyone who resides or 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.

NSW Health is continuing to investigate the movements of these cases in regional NSW, and the list of venues of concern and times may be updated further. NSW Health has identified 549 contacts as part of its investigations to date.

To support increased testing for these areas this long weekend, NSW Health is providing the following pop-up testing clinics:

  • Dubbo Showground, Wingewarra Street, 8am to 5pm
  • Forbes Showground, Show Street, 8am to 4pm
  • Coonabarabran drive through pop-up clinic, Crane Street, 10am to 4pm today

Hours have also been extended at the following existing clinics:

  • Moree District Hospital, Community Health, Picone Building, 35 Alice Street, Moree, 8am 6pm, seven days a week
  • Parkes Hospital drive-through clinic, 2 Morrisey Way, Parkes, 1pm to 3.30pm
  • Coonabarabran Hospital, 101 Edwards Street, Coonabarabran, 12pm to 3.30pm from Sunday

NSW Health thanks these communities for coming forward for testing, and urges anyone with even the mildest of cold-like symptoms to get tested immediately and isolate 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.

As part of the state’s ongoing sewage monitoring program, samples taken recently from the sewerage systems in Forbes and Castle Hill have detected no fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19.

This comes after two positive detections were reported at Castle Hill on Sunday 6 June and Wednesday 9 June.

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 asks everyone who has been in the Castle Hill area to continue to monitor carefully for symptoms. If they appear, please be tested without delay and isolate until a negative result is received.

The stay-at-home order for people in NSW who have been in Victoria since 4pm on Thursday 27 May was lifted yesterday (Friday 11 June).

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 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.
