COVID by the numbers – Wednesday – 6 new Hawkesbury cases - Woolies Windsor COVID alert
Welcome to Wednesday afternoon, and firstly that new Woolworths Windsor COVID Alert, just in.
This one’s for Tuesday September 14, so over a week ago, from 10pm to 6am. The person with COVID who was there was a “service provider (contractor)”. If you were at the store during those times you need to get a COVID test and isolate until you get a negative result.
Okay, on to the latest in-depth Hawkesbury numbers and COVID local news – the numbers are up to 8pm on Tuesday night.
This is the most up-to-date round-up of Hawkesbury COVID numbers you can get, compiled by numbers guru Kevin Pollard using NSW Health datasets.
Our thanks, as always, to Kevin for putting the numbers together in this easily accessible format.
Coupled with our regular news updates when we hear about new COVID venues, this builds into a useful daily source of information for Hawkesbury residents.
* Hawkesbury’s new cases are 6 today with 3 of them from an unknown source and not linked.
* There are 139 active COVID in the Hawkesbury (was 148 yesterday) - we have the postcodes and breakdown below for all of those.
* There are 663 active cases in the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District, which includes the Hawkesbury.
* There were 133,839 COVID tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day’s total of 121,661.
* There are currently 13,604 active COVID cases in NSW.
* Vaccinations as of the end of today, September 22:
* Hawkesbury: 85.3% first dose, 53.5% fully vaccinated
* NSW: 83.8% first dose, 55.6% fully vaccinated
* NSW will pilot an integrated Service NSW system that incorporates a person's proof of vaccination from October 6 and will run for a fortnight involving several hundred people in regional NSW. They'll build in security features including a hologram similar to a person's drivers licence.
Until then, people can download vaccine certification on the Medicare Express app and can then put it in your Google or Apple Wallet. If don't have smart phone you can call Services Australia and they will mail it to you.
