NSW Health continues to urge anyone who resides or works in, or has visited Gillenbah, Forbes, Dubbo, Coonabarabran and Moree since 1 June to be especially vigilant for the onset of even the mildest of cold-like symptoms, after two confirmed cases of COVID-19 travelled through regional NSW while potentially infectious.

We remind people to check the NSW Health website regularly for the full list of venues of concern associated with these cases, as the health advice for some of these venues has been updated.

NSW Health is continuing to investigate the movements of these cases in regional NSW, and has identified 739 contacts as part of its ongoing investigations.

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

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

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 in recent days from the sewerage systems in Dubbo, Moree and Narrandera have not detected any fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19.

However, people in these areas and other areas recently visited by the confirmed COVID-19 cases need to continue to be especially vigilant for the onset of even the mildest of cold-like symptoms and get tested immediately should they occur.

NSW Health is treating 25 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.
