Lismore City Council have just announced on their Facebook page that fragments of COVID-19 have been found in Lismore City Council’s South Lismore Sewage Treatment Plant.
Council says this was expected as this plant services Lismore Base Hospital that is currently treating a confirmed COVID-19 case.
No fragments have been found during regular testing at the East Lismore and Nimbin Sewage Treatment Plants.
Both Lismore plants are tested weekly and Nimbin twice weekly.
Council would also like to thank the community for following NSW Health COVID-19 guidelines as well as answering the call to get tested.
So far this week, more than 9700 people have been tested.
We urge people even with the mildest of symptoms to get tested.
