Venues are currently being assessed by the Public Health Unit to  ensure accurate assessment of risk for staff, and to determine if any  had close contact with the case. SMS messages will be sent to people  who checked in with the QR code.

We thank all the venues for their cooperation. All had COVID-19  business safety plans in place which has helped to minimise the risk  to customers and staff.

MLHD is also urging anyone in West Wyalong, Hay and Tooleybuc, or who  has been in these towns recently, to get tested if they have even the  slightest of symptoms and isolate until they receive a negative result.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, sore throat and dry  cough. Symptoms will generally appear 3-4 days after exposure to the  virus but can be up to 14 days later.

MLHD will deploy the mobile COVID Testing Clinic to enable anyone who  is a close or casual contact, or any community member who concerned,  to come forward to be tested. Further details on locations and times  for mobile testing will be released later today.
