In relation to the community cases announced on 26 April, all 122 close contacts that were identified have now returned an initial negative test.

Anyone who accepted a delivery from Uber Eats or Menulog between 29 April and 1 May or visited a restaurant in the list of sites (HealthyWA) (food and business) during the times indicated should monitor for COVID symptoms.

Anyone who develops symptoms within 14 days are advised to get a COVID test and isolate until they get the results. If they remain asymptomatic, there is no action other than to monitor for symptoms.
