Following three weeks without confirmed cases, two new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed this week in residents of the Northern NSW Local Health District.
The new cases include one resident who acquired the illness overseas and one whose case is still being investigated in regard to the source.
As we move to easing some restrictions on gatherings, dining and outdoor activities, the community is reminded to take personal responsibilities seriously. We still have an obligation to practise social distancing measures and maintain good hygiene to prevent transmission of COVID-19.
Anyone who is showing flu-like symptoms, however mild, is encouraged to get tested. Symptoms may include: fever, cough, sore throat, headache, shortness of breath or fatigue.
