Third Hunter case contained
17th July 2020
Hunter Health has confirmed a third Covid-19 case in the Newcastle area but there is no need to be alarmed.
The woman is a close contact of a man who returned to Newcastle from overseas last week and she, like that man and the second close associate, has been in isolation for the entire period she has been infectious.
There are no confirmed cases of Covid in the region that are the result of unknown community contact, but we must remain vigilant and continue to use common sense.
