Northern NSW Local Health District continues to urge people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and to seek testing if symptoms develop, as four new cases of COVID-19 were reported to 8pm last night (November 8).
‘Three cases are in the Grafton area of Clarence Valley Local Government Area (LGA) and are under investigation. One case is in the Lismore LGA and is linked to a known case,’ the Chief Executive of the Northern NSW Local Health District, Wayne Jones said.
‘There have now been 153 total cases in NNSWLHD since 16 June.
‘Even if you are fully vaccinated you should get tested and isolate immediately if you have even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms – such as a slightly runny nose, a scratchy or sore throat or generally feeling under the weather.’
New venue of concern

They must get tested and isolate according to the advice they are given by NSW Health.
Anyone else who has been at the venue below at the date and time listed is considered a casual contact and must immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.
