Stay-at-home orders will be extended for the Cowra Local Government Area (LGA), due to the risk of ongoing COVID-19 transmission.
The stay-at-home orders introduced on 20 September will be extended for seven days until 12:01am 5 October 2021.
The stay-at-home orders for Yass Valley LGA will be lifted, as scheduled, at midnight tonight.
To determine the extent of the risk and detect any other potential COVID-19 cases in the Cowra area, we are calling on the community to come forward for testing in large numbers.
NSW Health has exhorted all people throughout NSW to continue to come forward for testing at the first sign of even mild symptoms.
High vaccination rates are also essential to reduce the risk of transmission and protect the health and safety of the community.
COVID-19 vaccination is available through NSW Health clinics, GPs, pharmacies and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS).
A list of regional and rural NSW Health vaccination clinics is available on the NSW Government website: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/health-and-wellbeing/covid-19-vaccination-nsw/vaccination-clinics-regional-and-rural
