The Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has reported a new Goulburn case to 8pm last night.
The case is under investigation and SNSWLHD's Public Health Unit are working with a number of venues to inform close contacts of infectious cases and provide rapid swabbing where appropriate.
Any venues of concern identified through contact tracing will be announced as soon as they are known.
SNSWLHD is urging the Yass, Moruya and Jindabyne communities to get tested with even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms following the detection of fragments of the virus in the local sewage systems in the last 48 hours.
Although there are no confirmed COVID-19 cases in Yass, Moruya or Jindabyne, SNSWLHD is concerned that the presence of these fragments could signal undetected cases in the community.
Everyone in the District should be alert for any symptoms that could signal COVID-19 including headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever.
If symptoms appear, people must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
Testing in Goulburn is available at:
- Goulburn Base Hospital 130 Goldsmith Street, Goulburn Entry through the 'old' main entrance. 9am - 3pm Monday - Sunday.
- Goulburn Capital Pathology drive-through, former council depot, 2 Bourke Street, Goulburn. Enter via Bourke Street, south bound only 8am - 4pm Monday - Friday 8am - 12pm Saturday. Closed Sunday.
