Infectious visitors ‘no risk’, says health chief

Two Sydney residents who spent time in the region while infectious with coronavirus presented no risk to the public, according to Central Coast Local Health District chief executive Dr Andrew Montague.
“One of the cases spent time in a holiday park, and there were no contacts linked to this case at the park,” he said.
“The other case was a worker at a construction site, and a small number of casual contacts have been notified at the construction site,” Dr Montague said.
The locations of the holiday park and the construction site were not revealed.
Dr Montague said all potential contacts of the two cases, linked to known cases in Sydney, were immediately identified and advised of any potential risk to their health.
He said that, while there was no ongoing risk to the community from these cases, it was important people did not become complacent about testing.
“Testing rates on the Coast have been declining.
“We ask everyone to remain vigilant and continue monitoring for symptoms. If you notice any symptoms, no matter how mild, it is essential you get tested,” he said.
