Southern NSW exposure site list grows

5 Little Pigs in Huskisson is one of the new venues of concern to NSW Health (via Jervis Bay Tourism).

More locations in southern New South Wales have been classified as "venues of concern" by the state's health authorities, with the original timeframe expanded as three household contacts of the original case test positive.

Nearly 250 people have been identified as casual contacts of the family from Melbourne which visited the Jervis Bay area between 19 and 24 May while potentially infectious.

NSW Health is continuing to investigate the movements of the family and this list of venues may expand still.

Those who were at the following venues at the times listed have been asked to immediately call NSW Health on 1800 943 553, get tested and isolate until further information from authorities is provided:

  • Shell Coles Express Big Merino, Goulburn on 19 May between 1.45-2.05pm
  • The Coffee Pedaler, Gundagai on 19 May between 9.30-11.1am

  • Coles Vincentia Shopping Village, Vincentia on 21 May between 12-1pm and 22 May between 12-1pm

  • Gundagai Craft Centre, Gundagai on 19 May between 11am-12pm
  • Junque and Disorderly Antique Shop, Gundagai on 19 May between 11am-12pm

Anyone who lives in Jervis Bay, Vincentia, Huskisson, Gundagai or Goulburn, or has visited these areas since 19 May, is asked to be especially vigilant for the onset of even the mildest of cold-like symptoms, and is urged to come forward for testing immediately if they appear, then isolate until a negative result is received.
