Two confirmed cases of COVID-19 have transited through the Northern Rivers this week with casual contact sites at both West Ballina and Chinderah.
‘There are no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported among residents of Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD),’ said Lynne Weir, Acting Chief Executive Northern NSW Local Health District.
‘We have been notified of new casual contact venues associated with a confirmed case of COVID-19 who transited through the region.’
The first casual contact venue is the northbound Ampol service station at 112, Tweed Valley Way, Chinderah on Monday, 6 September from 12.45pm to 1.30pm.
The second casual contact venue was the BP Travel Centre at 41 Bruxner Highway, West Ballina, Wednesday, 8 September between 8.30am to 9.15am.
‘Any member of the public who attended the following venues at the times listed is a casual contact and must get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result,’ said Ms Weir.
All people who are diagnosed with COVID-19 self-isolate to ensure there is no ongoing risk of infection to others in the community. It is vital that anyone who has any symptoms of COVID-19 gets tested as soon as they can and isolates while they await their result.
