The Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) continues to urge the community to get vaccinated against COVID-19, with 30 cases reported to 8pm yesterday (24 October).
Nineteen are from the Kempsey Local Government Area (LGA), seven are from the Coffs Harbour LGA, three are from Port Macquarie-Hastings LGA and one from the Nambucca Valley LGA.
Twenty-six of the cases are linked to a known case or cluster and the source of the infection of four cases is under investigation.
There have been 160 cases reported in the MNCLHD since the beginning of the current NSW outbreak.
The North Coast Public Health Unit is currently investigating the latest cases and contact tracing is underway, including any potential exposure venues of public concern.
COVID-19 exposure sites are listed on the NSW Government website. We encourage you to regularly check the website as the list of venues of concern and relevant health advice is updated as new cases emerge and investigations continue.
More than 6,160 COVID-19 tests were conducted across the Mid North Coast in the past week, the highest number undertaken since the pandemic began in March 2020. This included a record 3,275 tests at Kempsey for the week.
A big thank you to everyone who has come forward for testing and to our dedicated staff at our testing clinics who are working so hard to protect the community.
Anyone with even the mildest of cold-like symptoms is urged to immediately come forward for testing and isolate until a negative result is received.
There are 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest clinic visit the NSW Government website or contact your GP.
