Posters Encourage Backpackers to Test for COVID-19

Healthy North Coast (North Coast PHN) has developed and distributed new posters to display at local youth and backpackers hostels encouraging testing for COVID-19.

This is in support of the Northern NSW Local Health District’s recent opening of their Byron Central Hospital’s COVID-19 Clinic. The free clinic will welcome backpackers in the Byron Shire who have any COVID-19-like symptoms, even if those symptoms are mild. NNSWLHD will be working with agencies including Byron Shire Council to advertise the clinic and the expanded target group eligible for testing in order to connect with the backpacking community.

Read the full NNSWLHD release.

Healthy North Coast’s posters include a specific Byron Bay version, as well as a more general option for use in other towns across our region.

Healthy North Coast staff have been phoning hostel managers to encourage them to display these posters and to speak to their guests about testing.
