NSW Health was notified on Sunday evening that fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 were detected in the Castle Hill Sewage Network. This catchment includes about 8,400 people and takes sewage from the following suburbs: Glenhaven, Dural, Kenthurst, Kellyville, Castle Hill.

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 is asking everyone in these areas to be especially vigilant in monitoring for symptoms, and if they appear get tested and isolate immediately until a negative result is received.

NSW Health also 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.

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 232 people as close contacts. None have tested positive to date.

Anyone who has been in Melbourne recently is reminded to keep checking the list of venues of concern on the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services website. Further venues have been added, and this list may continue to be updated.

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.
