Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) is urging the community to get vaccinated and to get tested if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms to keep the community safe.
There were no new cases of COVID-19 notified in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
The total number of cases in SNSWLHD remains at 553 since the start of the current outbreak in June.
Everyone aged 12 years and over is eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be safe, effective and life-saving.
NSW Health state-run clinics are now offering a booster dose, using the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, to individuals aged 18 and over if they have received their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least six months prior.
This booster shot will help people maintain a high level of protection against the COVID-19 virus, including the Delta variant.
First, second and booster vaccinations can be booked through the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder.
Anyone who develops symptoms such as headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever, must get tested and isolate immediately until a negative result is received.
There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW.
To help stop the spread of COVID-19:
• If you are unwell, get tested and isolate right away – don’t delay.
• Wash your hands regularly. Take hand sanitiser with you when you go out.
• Keep your distance. Leave 1.5 metres between yourself and others.
• Wear a mask indoors at public venues and while on or waiting for public transport.
