ACT Health is advising anyone in the ACT who has been in the Greater Sydney region of NSW on or after 30 April to visit the NSW Health website and check the exposure locations that a new positive COVID-19 case has attended.
NSW Health today announced that a person from Sydney’s Eastern suburbs has tested positive to COVID-19. NSW Health is investigating the source of the infection and contact tracing is underway.
The man visited a number of locations in Sydney while potentially infectious.
ACT Health is advising anyone who has attended any of the current venues (exposure locations) at the dates and times specified, must immediately get tested, quarantine for 14 days from the time they were there, and call ACT Health on 5124 6209.
Anyone who has recently travelled to Sydney should continue to check the NSW Health website regularly as investigations are continuing and more venues may be added to the list of exposure locations.
ACT Health will be adding these new exposure locations in NSW to the COVID-19 Areas of Concern Notice, and will also continue to monitor the situation in NSW closely and further respond if required.
ACT Health reminds travellers to regularly check the public health advice in the state or territory you are visiting or have visited for two weeks after returning.
ACT Health asks the public to “Please continue to keep Canberra safe and strong by:
- physically distancing from people you do not know
- practising careful hand and respiratory hygiene
- staying home if unwell
- getting tested for COVID-19 if experiencing even mild COVID-like symptoms
- using the Check In CBR app when out and about for contact tracing purposes.”
