The total number of cases in the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWHD) since 16 June remains at 122.

‘There have been no new cases of COVID-19 reported for Northern NSW Local Health District in the 24 hours to 8pm 27 October,’ said Lynne Weir, Acting Chief Executive of NNSWHD.

‘As restrictions continue to ease in NSW and we transition to living with COVID-19, it is vital that people continue to practise COVID-safe behaviours.

‘This includes coming forward for testing, wearing a mask where required, maintaining physical distancing, particularly in indoor settings, washing hands regularly or using hand sanitiser, and always checking in using the Service NSW app. Even if you are fully vaccinated you should get tested and isolate immediately if you have even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms – a slightly runny nose, a scratchy or sore throat or generally feeling under the weather,’ she said.

There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. Find a clinic at COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.

Walk-In Vaccination Clinics

Walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics are operating in Byron Bay and South Grafton, providing Pfizer vaccinations for anyone aged 12 and over.

  • South Grafton: Bob Liddiard Park, open today, Thursday 28 and tomorrow, Friday 29 October from 9.30am – 3.30pm.
  • Byron Bay: Byron Bay Surf Club, open every weekday from now until Thursday 11 November, then again Monday 15 November. Open from 8.00am – 3.30pm.

No appointment is needed. Please bring your Medicare Card if you have one.

‘These clinics are accessible and inclusive for people with a disability, and reasonable adjustments can be made to accommodate access if required,’ said Ms Weir.

‘We encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as they are able to. Find bookings at the Australian Government’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder, or you can also call Health Direct on 1800 571 155 for assistance to book.’
