Blue Mountains residents with minor symptoms of COVID-19 have been urged to come forward for testing.
NSW Health executive director Dr Jeremy McAnulty issued the call at a press conference today April 25.
“In the last 24 hours we’ve seen a small number of cases in the Blue Mountains area and so we’re keen that people in the Blue Mountains area, if you have any minor symptoms of either fever or respiratory illnesses, cough, runny nose, sore throat, to come forward,” said Dr McAnulty.
“We would like to get you tested either through your GP or one of the COVID clinics in the area or the ED (emergency department). We’d like to get you tested so we make sure we find cases early so we can make sure they’re isolated and their contacts are traced.”
There were 25 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Blue Mountains local government area at 8pm on April 24.
