NSW Health was notified on Sunday evening that fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 were 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 have 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. 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.

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. There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic, visit: COVID-19 clinics or contact your GP.
