COVID UPDATE – SUNDAY – HAWKESBURY IN LOCKDOWN BUT NO LOCAL CASES REPORTED - 30 NEW NSW CASES
NSW recorded 30 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, all of which are linked to the Bondi cluster.
Two new overseas-acquired cases were recorded in the same period, bringing the total number of cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic to 5567.
We are in lockdown in the Hawkesbury but you can still shop for essentials, including food
Of the 112 locally acquired cases recorded since 16 June 2021, when the index case for the Bondi cluster, a driver who transported international flight crew, was reported, 110 are linked to this cluster and two remain under investigation.
Ten new cases are linked to the Great Ocean Foods seafood wholesaler in Marrickville.
This brings the total number of cases acquired through Great Ocean Foods to 11, not including the original source case who worked there during their infectious period.
Any person – and their household contacts – who attended or directly received a delivery from Great Ocean Foods from Monday 21 June to Friday 25 June must immediately call NSW Health on 1800 943 553, get tested and isolate until NSW Health provides further advice.
NSW Health issued a public health alert last night regarding five Virgin Australia flights between east-coast cities on which a Sydney-based cabin crew member worked who was yesterday diagnosed with COVID-19.
NSW Health is working with its counterparts in Victoria and Queensland and Virgin Australia to reach all passengers on affected flights on Friday and Saturday.
