NSW Health has been notified of new venues of concern associated with confirmed cases of COVID‑19, as well as a sewage detection.

NSW Health's ongoing sewage surveillance program has detected traces of the virus that causes COVID-19 at the Broken Hill sewage treatment plant, which serves about 9,900 people.

This is of particular concern, as there are no known cases in Broken Hill. Everyone in the area is urged to monitor for the onset of symptoms, and if they appear, to immediately be tested and isolate until a negative result is received.

Anyone who attended the following venues during the times listed must immediately get tested and isolate until receiving further advice from NSW Health:

In addition, NSW Health has been notified of new casual-contact venues of concern across NSW which are associated with confirmed cases of COVID-19.

To view these new venues, please visit the NSW Government website.

Anyone who visited one of these venues at the times listed is a casual contact and must immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.

Please get tested even if you have had a test in recent days. If your exposure at this venue was in the past four days, you must get another test on day five from the date of exposure. Wear a mask around others and limit your movements until you get another negative result. You should continue to monitor for symptoms and if any symptoms appear, get tested and isolate again.

Please continue to check COVID-19 case locations webpage regularly, as the list of venues of concern and relevant health advice are being updated as new cases emerge and investigations continue.

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

There are more than 420 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week.

To find your nearest clinic visit COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.
