NSW Health continues to urge anyone who resides or works in, or has visited these areas, since 1 June to be especially vigilant for the onset of even the mildest of cold-like symptoms, and to get tested immediately and isolate should they occur.

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.
