Reminder to stay alert, says public health director

“We’re not out of the woods yet when it comes to Covid-19.”
That is the message from Central Coast Local Health District acting public health director Dr Katherine Todd.
Commenting on the Woy Woy cases, she said: “These are the first cases we’ve had in some time and residents should take it as a reminder.
“Residents need to stay alert and aware, continue keeping non-essential travel to a minimum, and avoid excessive contact with people.
“Keep up with your hygiene practices, make sure you continue following instructions on public contact tracing such as signing in at restaurants and cafes and, above all, make sure you get tested in you develop Covid-like symptoms,” Dr Todd said.
She said: “What we have seen from previous cases in NSW is that public transport has so far not been linked to any serious outbreaks, so it is not seen as a significant exposure risk.”
Covid-19 testing is available at Gosford Hospital between 9am and 5pm on weekdays and 10am to 4pm on weekends.
People are encouraged to book ahead on 4320 5055 although walk-in appointments are accepted.
