Coast resident tests positive

COVID testingFree COVID-19 testing at the Central Coast Respiratory Clinic, and available across the Coast.

[July 31, 2021] A Central Coast resident is among the 212 people across NSW who tested positive for COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.

The case was in self-isolation during their entire infectious period. Four close contacts have all tested negative for COVID-19 and are in isolation.

This latest case is linked to a known workplace exposure site in Sydney and is not linked to previously notified cases on the Central Coast.

It is also unrelated to the recent sewage detection from the Toukley catchment.

The Central Coast community is reminded to be vigilant for any symptoms of COVID19, no matter how mild, and get tested immediately and self-isolate until you receive a negative result.

    On the coast our problem is CEO farmer of CC Council not corona.sack him please he doesn’t deserve $500’000 period

  3. How long am I going to have to wait now for my vaccinations, as mine has now been cancelled for HSC students in Western Sydney, very frustrating I’ve been doing the right thing, not my fault our government didn’t order enough vaccines, I can’t have Az or I would.

    • Same for me I can’t have AZ and it’s impossible to get other. Even the poorest countries have a choice of 5 vaccines. France will roll out booster vaccines in September

    Forget about blaming what the government has done in the last 18 months with drought bushfires floods covid-19.
    Think about all the hand outs the Australian government give out,you don’t get this in a lot of other countries we her in Australia are very let’s all start taking a bit of responsibility for your actions if we all done what we should have done we would be a better off.we all need to stop laying the blame and take responsibility for our auction.

    • Sorry Brian, please… the government has done sfa in real terms, but hand out money to big business and a drip for others…it is the people and the farmers that have had to bear the burden.The government was warned about the problems long before the outbreak. They were patting themselves on the back as gold standard, now they have to reap the whirlwind.Late to the party,late to the dance which will be shown in the next election. Please why are we at the back of the pack now…the vaccines they should have invested in are the mRNA type as these can be twigged to further variations.Lucky the Pfizer is of that type …but with limited qualities…all the eggs in one basket comes to mind. The astra cannot adapt form what I read. News has come to hand about a possible further variant rampant in the South America…so the efficiency of our two vaccines may be further reduced.

  5. Central coast has a poor attitude when it comes to the whole thing.
    The “this doesn’t effect me” syndrome is so prevalent in the community
    If you can seriously say that you haven’t thought in a scenario that you shouldn’t be doing
    “oh, it should be ok, we’re fine”
    then we’ll done to you
    The small minority of you wouldn’t be able to fill the north wing of Gosford stadium

    I have always said that Australia is in a “geographical advantage” but somehow living on the Central Coast nsw for the last 26years l see no evidence of Australia taking advantage of this scenario.
    Ever hear of the saying “ you learn from other people’s situations.”
    Australia you have watched Europe’s situation and if the people in the so called power where not stupid you would of prepare from the “ get go “ ( March 2019 ..had a PLAN ) to vaccinate the country ASAP! I have lived around the world and this is the only country l have witnessed a lack of respect for people knowledge in their positions eg scientist, health, businesses. The is always an idiot that comes along and says ( l can do their job ) and here lies the serious fault line of the disaster’s we see over and over. Major back stabbing, lies , mis- information and the power is given to the uncaring idiot ????

    Gladys is ‘offended’ at the question as to why vaccine is being taken from the central coast and being redistributed to Sydney since we are part of regional NSW. Does she not know that we are in lock down as part of Greater Sydney- including schools? It seems that the definition changes to her advantage-ie is funding required eg $90m+ to Hornsby and 0 to the Central Coast Why aren’t year 12 students on the Central Coast who are in lock down just as entitled vaccination as to those in Sydney. Also, if we are part of regional NSW why are we still in lockdown given the relative few cases loclly , who are in isolation.

    Where has my comment gone ?

    I am sooooo tired of lockdown. I’m so sad for the children not being at school, the thousands of people whose businesses have suffered and the people who feel there is no hope so decide to take their own life. What a selfish weak arrogant and I compassionate person Gladys is. I will NEVER vote Liberal again ! People will decide to get vaccinated and then some won’t. Ok. Move on. The percentage of recovery of Covid is more than 98%. Better odds than some other diseases in our community. Let’s get back to living.

    Didn’t you know that the central coast doesn’t exist especially the north
