There were two cases of COVID-19 reported in the Mid North Coast Local Health District to 8pm yesterday (5 October).
Both cases are from the Port Macquarie-Hastings Local Government Area.
One case is a close household contact of an earlier case reported on Monday and has been isolating throughout their infectious period.
The other case is linked to a known case diagnosed in Port Macquarie last week.
The North Coast Public Health Unit is currently investigating this case and contact tracing is underway. We will provide more information as soon as it is available, including any potential exposure venues of public concern.
NSW Health does not disclose details about venues unless there is a public health reason to do so.
When a confirmed COVID-19 case attends a venue while possibly infectious, NSW Health carries out a risk assessment on that venue to determine whether other people may have been exposed and whether there is a public health risk.
There have been 34 cases reported in the MNCLHD since the beginning of the current NSW outbreak.
We ask the community to please remain vigilant and come forward for testing for even the mildest symptoms of COVID-19.
There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. Find a clinic at COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.
The Health District encourages people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as they are able to. Find available bookings at the Australian Government’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder (previously Eligibility Checker), or you can also call Health Direct on 1800 571 155 for assistance to book.
