- All are in the Queanbeyan Palerang region and are under investigation. Four are in Karabar and three are in Queanbeyan.
SNSWLHD is urging everyone aged 12 years and over to come forward for a COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be safe, effective and life-saving. It is easy to book a vaccination close to home using the Commonwealth Government’s Vaccine Clinic Finder.
Everyone in the District should be alert for any symptoms that could signal COVID‑19, including headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever. If symptoms appear, people must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
