NSW Health continues to ask anyone who lives in Gundagai, Goulburn, Jervis Bay, Huskisson, Hyams Beach or Vincentia, or has visited these areas since 19 May, to be especially vigilant for symptoms after four travellers who later tested positive for COVID-19 spent time there.

NSW Health would like to thank these communities for their efforts in coming forward for testing and reminds people to please check the NSW Health website regularly as the health advice for venues may be updated. Some of the venues listed have surpassed 14 days since exposure, however, it is important that anyone who attended any of these venues follows the health advice provided.

Ongoing investigations by NSW Health into the movements of the cases has so far identified 219 people as close contacts. None have tested positive to date, and the contacts who attended venues of concern within the past 14 days are continuing to self-isolate.

NSW Health urges everyone to continue to take all practical measures to stay COVID-safe, including practising good hand hygiene, and always using QR codes to check in to and out of venues. Masks are recommended in any situation where physical distancing is not possible, such as on public transport.

Anyone with even the mildest of cold-like symptoms is urged to come forward for testing immediately, and to 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.
