The case under investigation from yesterday is believed to be most likely acquired overseas some weeks ago, and to be no longer infectious. NSW Health is waiting for results of a blood test to show whether the positive swab result represents an old infection.
A precautionary approach has been taken and the case is in isolation, and all close contacts are in self-isolation and are being tested.
