BREAKING NEWS: Four Central Coast residents have tested positive. The announcement came as part of the Premier’s press conference today, Saturday July 24, 2021.
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.
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.”
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.
