Gillenbah among exposure sites for COVID-19 Vic transit case to Qld


Several regional New South Wales communities including Narrandera on the Riverina face an anxious wait to see if they have been exposed to the coronavirus after an infected Melbourne woman road-tripped through the state for four days.


The woman stopped at the Caltex Narrandera in Gillenbah on Tuesday 1 June between 10:30 and 11am. Anyone who attended this and other sites has been asked to immediately isolate and get tested for COVID-19.


The woman also made stops in Dubbo, Forbes and Moree on her way to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, where she tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday.


Eleven venues in the four towns have been identified by NSW Health as potential exposure sites, with more expected.


Among them are two service stations, Moree Woolworths, several cafes and the Reading Cinemas in Dubbo.


NSW Health is also urging anyone who has been in any of the affected towns to monitor for symptoms and if they have any to get tested.
