NSW’s sewage surveillance program has detected the virus that causes COVID-19 at the Woy Woy Treatment Plant.
The latest sample was taken on Tuesday, 7 September at the sewage treatment plant which serves an area of about 41,300 people in suburbs including Blackwall, Booker Bay, Ettalong Beach, Horsfield Bay, Patonga, Pearl Beach, Phegans Bay, Umina Beach, Woy Woy and Woy Woy Bay.
Although there are recent confirmed cases in the catchment area, the rising virus levels could also indicate undetected, active COVID-19 cases in the community.
Anyone living or working in these areas is urged to be particularly vigilant for any symptoms of COVID-19. If even the mildest of symptoms appear, please get tested immediately and isolate until a negative result is received.
Reminder to stay vigilant
Community vigilance is required because of the mounting evidence of community transmission:
Symptoms of COVID-19 include a fever, cough, sore/scratchy throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, and loss of taste or smell.
High rates of testing are critical to detecting transmission and preventing further spread of COVID-19 in the community.
There are more than 475 COVID-19 testing clinics across NSW. To find one near you, visit COVID-19 Testing Centres Central Coast or contact your GP.
Central Coast Local Health District urges those eligible in the community to continue to come forward for vaccination. Please check eligibility and book on www.health.gov.au/
