NSW Health was notified yesterday (Sunday) evening that fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been detected in the Castle Hill Sewage Network. This catchment includes about 8,400 people and takes sewage from the following suburbs: Glenhaven, Dural, Kenthurst, Kellyville, Castle Hill.
People who are recently recovered from COVID-19 can continue to shed virus fragments into the sewerage system for several weeks even after they are no longer infectious.
Nonetheless, NSW Health is asking everyone in these areas to be especially vigilant in monitoring for symptoms, and if they appear get tested and isolate immediately until a negative result is received.
NSW Health continues to ask anyone who lives in Gundagai, Goulburn, Jervis Bay, Huskisson, Hyams Beach or Vincentia, or has visited these areas since 19 May, to be especially vigilant for symptoms after four travellers who later tested positive for COVID-19 spent time there.
