NSW Health always alerts the community as soon as possible when there is any risk to public health, including exposure venues related to confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Further venues of concern are being identified as case investigations continue, and the list of venues is continuing to be updated. Please check the NSW Health website regularly and follow the relevant health advice if you have attended a venue of concern.

Given the latest cases of community transmission and updated health advice, NSW Health is asking people in the Sydney and Blue Mountains area (excluding the Central Coast and Wollongong and the Illawarra) to follow updated health advice until 12.01am Thursday 24 June 2021:

• Avoid non-essential visits to aged care and disability facilities, but if visiting, wear a mask and limit visits to two people per day.

• Masks are mandatory on public transport and strongly encouraged in all public indoor venues, such as retail, theatres, hospitals, aged care facilities, and for front-of-house hospitality staff.

NSW Health’s ongoing Sewage Surveillance Program has detected fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 at the Camellia North and Camelia South pumping stations in Sydney’s western suburbs.

These catchments serve about 109,600 people and covers suburbs including Camellia, Harris Park, Granville, South Granville, Mays Hill, Merrylands, Merrylands West, North Parramatta, Parramatta, South Wentworthville, Westmead, Guildford West, Sydney Olympic Park, Newington, Holroyd, Clyde, Auburn, Old Guildford, Guildford, Silverwater, Rosehill, and Rydalmere.

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

A number of people in these catchments have recently been released from hotel quarantine after recovering from COVID-19.

However, NSW Health urges everyone in these areas to be especially vigilant for any cold like symptoms. If they appear, please immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.

Anyone with even the mildest of cold-like symptoms is urged to immediately come forward for testing and isolate until a negative result is received.

There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest clinic visit COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.

NSW Health is treating 39 COVID-19 cases, none of whom are in intensive care. Most cases (97 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
