All four people are in self-isolation at home, with health staff undertaking daily wellness checks.

The first case is linked to a known case at a construction site in Sydney. It is included in the numbers to 8pm last night, which were reported by NSW Health this morning.

The three other cases are household contacts of the first case and were notified shortly after 8pm last night. These three cases will be included in tomorrow’s numbers.

All cases were isolating at home during their infectious period.

One other household contact has also been identified and is in home isolation. They have tested negative for COVID-19.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said “While these four new cases are incredibly concerning our community has dodged a bullet because, at this stage, there are no local exposure sites.”

“The Central Coast has dodged a bullet”

It’s too early to say whether this impacts the chances of the Central Coast’s lockdown being ended said Crouch in a media statement.

The cases were related to the same work site where the previous Central Coast case worked.

Adam Crouch will be speaking with Dr Chant on Monday to ask her for the latest Health advice. 

Stay-at-home orders remain in place across all Greater Sydney, including the Central Coast.

    How does this council man know that none of the 4 people infected have spread it on to to others given how highy infections the delta variant is particularly?

    We need a police barrier on the Hawkesbury bridges, 18 month and nothing till now, is this the start, lets pray its not.

    Agree with Alfred! Let’s get serious about protecting the Central Coast.

  5. Good point have checking points to protect people that live up the coast….Maybe check number plates

  6. Toni Mcmurray | July 25, 2021 at 8:18 pm |

    The main reason Victoria stopped their numbers climb was to introduce travel permits and police checkpoints our MP is very naive if not implemented to protect the central coast

  7. I love how we are part of greater Sydney when it comes to lockdown, but regional when it comes to funding. Not to mention government enquiries into our magnificent council. Hypocrites.

    Police at the top of Kariong every Friday & Saturday checking people in !!!

    I have been and got tested four time’s and not once did I get a result back from any of them. Twice at Woy Woy hospital both at the different time’s they were testing, they gave me a Sydney phone No. which I phoned they could not find my results, and the same at the other place’s I went to. Now to find out that I mightn’t be able to get vaccine either because of my age (64) I do not want AZ only Pfizer, BUT like most things to get anything you got to live in Sydney.

  10. The quicker you get vaccinated the better, AZ is a good vaccine its better then getting covid and you will get a Pfizer booster later. I’m fully vaccinated with AZ and I feel relieved knowing my chances of dying from covid has reduced from 0 to1% and if infected passing it on to others is low.
    Let’s all get vaccinated as it’s the only way out of these lock downs and covid will weaken and die off

    why is the cetral coast not notified of whats happening with covet when the abc covers all other areas of naustralia . yesterday we were told of isolated spots where covit had been found but nothing at all today – the system is broken when one wants to know spots to avoid

    I want to know why a member of a household with 5 COVID confirmed cases was out shopping at no less than 15 Central Coast outlets over Fri-Sat-Sun (and just sayin 4 were bottelos)? I hope they fine there irresponsible dumb asses for each of those 15 times.
    Only good news is they are now in a secure facility off the coast.

  14. Beverley Stewart | July 27, 2021 at 6:29 pm |

    We all need to get vaccinated not waiting otherwise COVID 19 will just spread it is not rocket science,

  15. Charles Kent | August 6, 2021 at 11:47 am |

    Pfizer vaccine should be made availible to anyone over 60,
    Then we can all be vaccinated. Astra Zenica is 5 times cheaper
    To buy,thats why the government is pushing it!

    Pfizer vaccine should be made avalible to anyone over 60
    Then we can all be vaccinated
