NSW Health continues to investigate potential exposure sites at Coffs Harbour visited by a positive COVID-19 case last week.

NSW Health is reminding anyone who attended the Hoey Moey on Thursday 15 July between 3.55pm and 4.20pm that they are a close contact and must get tested and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result, and call 1800 943 553 unless they have already been contacted by NSW Health.

The Shoreline construction site at Coffs Harbour was closed yesterday after it was attended by the same positive case. All workers at the site have been declared close contacts. They have been tested and directed to isolate at home for 14 days regardless of the test result.

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.

Public health experts will determine if there is a public health reason for those potential exposure sites to be listed as venues of concern.

As part of its investigation of potential exposure sites in the Coffs Harbour area, NSW Health directly contacts people known to have been at those places and they are advised to follow health advice.

Please check the NSW Government website regularly, as the list of venues of concern and relevant health advice are being updated as investigations continue.

The Mid North Coast Local Health District has experienced increased COVID-19 testing since the Bondi cluster began in mid-June.

A new drive-through COVID-19 testing clinic opened yesterday at Coffs Harbour International Stadium to increase the District’s testing capacity. The clinic is open from 8am to 8pm on weekdays and 8am to 5pm on weekends.
