The North Coast Public Health Unit is urging anyone who attended a large funeral at Lions Park, Nambucca Headland on Saturday 23 October at 11am to come forward for COVID-19 testing.
A small number of people who attended the funeral have subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
The cases, all from the Nambucca Valley Local Government Area, were diagnosed today and will be included in tomorrow’s NSW figures.
Contact tracing is underway and the North Coast Public Health Unit is working to assess whether any of those attending the funeral will be classified as close or casual contacts.
Anyone who attended the funeral is asked to isolate immediately and remain isolated until they receive a negative result or are contacted directly by NSW Health.
