Jindabyne COVID cases continue to grow, Bega Valley clear

While the Bega Valley continues to remain free of new COVID-19 cases, six have been recorded across the Southern NSW Local Health District - three of those in Jindabyne.

As of November 24, SNSWLHD reports zero active cases in the Bega Valley, with no new notifications since several were recorded on November 11 and 12 in Pambula.

SNSWLHD is urging community members to continue to come forward for vaccination and to be alert for any symptoms that could signal COVID-19 following notification of the six new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm Tuesday.

Of the three new cases in Jindabyne in the Snowy Monaro Region, two are under investigation and one is linked to a known case.

There were also three new cases recorded in the Queanbeyan Palerang LGA - two are in Bungendore and one is in Googong. The Googong case was acquired overseas and the Bungendore cases are under investigation.

This brings the total cases in SNSWLHD to 561 since the start of the current outbreak in June.

Meanwhile, SNSWLHD reported it would no longer be issuing daily COVID-19 media releases. New cases and LGA case tallies will continue to be shared after 11am each day on the SNSWLHD Facebook page.

A media release will be issued if there is new or urgent public health information to share with the community.

Anyone developing COVID-19 symptoms such as headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever, must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.

There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW.
