COVID UPDATE: FOURTH CASE DISCOVERED IN ARMIDALE

Friday, 13 August 2021

 

I have been advised of the confirmation of a fourth COVID-19 case in Armidale, detected overnight.

 

I am informed the individual is from the same household as the other three cases and has been in isolation since last week and throughout their period of infection, meaning they present no risk to the community.

 

While any new case is not great news, this one is not unexpected. What the health experts know about the Delta strain is that when one person contracts it in a household, it’s almost always transmitted to every other member of that household.

 

With this fourth confirmed case, everyone living in that Armidale household now has COVID-19.

 

This is another timely reminder for us all to keep up the good work, continue to abide by the stay-at-home order and get tested if you have even the mildest of symptoms. We cannot afford to slacken off now.

 

Take care and stay safe everyone!
