The COVOID-19 virus is unsettling for us all, at home and in our broader communities, should you wish to seek advice we recommend NSW Health as your first choice for up-to-date and accurate information.

NSW Health has developed and exercised a range of procedures for case finding, diagnosis, and contact tracing for high consequence infectious diseases (such as pandemic influenza, SARS, MERS, and emerging infections) should they occur in NSW. These procedures are being used to identify contacts of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in NSW.
