As reported this morning, the source of the new case’s infection is still under investigation. Genomic sequencing results received last night show a match to the viral strain of a COVID-positive returned traveller who was in the Sofitel Wentworth quarantine hotel while infectious.

There are more than 350 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. Find your  nearest testing clinic or contact your GP.

NSW Health urges anyone in NSW with even the mildest symptoms, such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, to come forward immediately for testing, then isolate until they receive a negative result.
