For the second day, the Northern NSW Local Health District has recorded no new cases of COVID-19.

This report is for the 48 hours to 8pm yesterday, October 31.

Northern NSW Local Health District Chief Executive, Wayne Jones, says the total number of cases in the District since 16 June remains at 124.

‘As restrictions in NSW ease further this week, it is vital that people continue to practise
COVID-safe behaviour,’ says Mr Jones.

‘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.

There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW.

Find a clinic at COVID-19 testing clinic or contact your GP.
