View the latest updates.
There have been no new COVID-19 cases and no sewage detections in the Mid North Coast Local Health District to 8pm yesterday (27 September).
There have been 16 cases reported in the local health district since the beginning of the current NSW outbreak.
The community’s response to the recent call for increased COVID-19 testing has been fantastic, with more than 1,400 tests conducted across the region yesterday, 933 of which were at Port Macquarie.
We’d like to thank our wonderful staff at our testing clinics for all their tireless efforts and the community for coming forward for testing. We know the lines have been long but we really appreciate everyone who waited to get tested and supported our staff who were doing their very best.
We continue to urge anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhoea or muscle aches – to self-isolate and seek COVID-19 testing.
There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. Find a clinic at COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.
We encourage our community 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.
