COVID-19 Update: new locations identified
3rd August 2020
An important announcement from Hunter Health.
Anyone who visited the following venues on the dates and times posted is ordered to self-isolate for 14 days and get tested for Covid-19.
* Hotel Jesmond on July 29 between 7pm and 9pm
* Wallsend Diggers on July 29 between 9pm and 11pm
* Lambton Park Hotel on July 30 between 8pm and 9pm
* Wallsend Diggers on July 30 between 9pm and 11pm
You MUST be tested regardless of symptoms. If your initial test is negative, you must stay home in isolation for the 14 days but get a second test if symptoms appear.
The advice for the Toronto Courthouse case is different.
As I reported yesterday, a person who visited the courthouse from Sydney last Monday July 27 has since tested positive for the virus. That person did not attend any other venue in Toronto. All close contacts have been identified and contacted. Anyone who visited the courthouse on that day between 7am and 2pm DO NOT have to self-isolate for 14 days, but should get tested if any symptoms appear.
I will post more information when I know it.
Please stick to the basic hygiene advice and use common sense if you're out and about. Stay safe.
