FOURTEEN NEW LOCAL CASES
COVID UPDATE - 11.10am Tuesday September 14
Another 14 new cases were reported in the Hunter Region in the 24 hours to 8pm last night. These new cases take the total number in the current outbreak to 324. There are currently 174 active cases in the local region. While one of those people have died, 149 local people have now fully recovered.
CASE AT MYUNA COLLIERY: Among those new cases is a worker at Myuna Colliery. I've been assured that all close contacts have already been identified and are isolating, so here's hoping that the virus has been contained quickly and the worker recovers well. The mine is now operating again.
