Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast, Adam Crouch, announced today, Tuesday, July 27 that the Central Coast lockdown could not be ended due to the current cases stemming from a construction worker and the possible cases from the weekend’s protests in Sydney.
“Unfortunately, the health risk is just too high.
“To end the lockdown now would only speed up transmission of the Delta strain.”
Crouch said it would take a few days to see if any community transmission occurred at one of the 18 exposure sites on the Central Coast.
The exposure site list can be found here in a previous article: https://coastcommunitynews.com.au/central-coast/news/2021/07/local-positive-test-sparks-large-contract-tracing-effort-in-the-north/
