Anyone who lives in Gundagai, Goulburn, Jervis Bay, Huskisson, Hyams Beach or Vincentia, or has visited these areas since 19 May, is asked to be especially vigilant for symptoms after four travellers who later tested positive for COVID-19 spent time there.

NSW Health initially advised anyone who had been at venues of concern associated with these cases to get tested and isolate until receiving further information from NSW Health.

Ongoing investigations by NSW Health into the movements of the cases has so far identified 130 people as close contacts. All are self-isolating and none of these people have tested positive to date.  

Please check the NSW Health website regularly, as the health advice for venues may be updated.

NSW Health yesterday extended its stay-at-home restrictions for people in NSW who have been in Victoria since 4pm on Thursday 27 May for a further seven days. These measures are in line with Victoria's restrictions and will be reviewed by NSW Health on 10 June.

Anyone in NSW who has been in Victoria, including regional Victoria, after 4pm on Thursday 27 May must continue to follow stay-at-home directions for 14 days, or until the order is lifted.

For NSW residents living along the Victorian border, the stay-at-home requirement will only apply to people who have been outside the defined border region in Victoria since 4pm on Thursday 27 May.

NSW Health urges people who have been in Victoria in the past 14 days to regularly check the Victoria Department of Health and Human Services website for recently added venues of concern linked to the latest cases.

If you are in NSW and attended any of the venues identified at the times listed, please contact NSW Health immediately on 1800 943 553.

NSW Health urges everyone to continue to take all practical measures to stay COVID-safe, including practising good hand hygiene, and always using QR codes to check in to and out of venues.

Masks are recommended in any situation where physical distancing is not possible, such as on public transport.

Anyone with even the mildest of cold-like symptoms is urged to come forward for testing immediately, and to isolate until a negative result is received.
