COVID-19 case confirmed as visitor to Goulburn and Marulan locations

Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) was notified yesterday afternoon that a COVID-19 positive case visited three sites in Goulburn and one in Marulan on Tuesday 20 July 2021. Sites open to the public were Bunnings Goulburn, and KFC Marulan. Additional cleaning has been undertaken at both stores overnight and all staff will be tested for COVID19 today. Overnight, NSW Health has sent a text to staff and visitors who checked in to either of these venues using the Service NSW QR-check-in system. Visitors will be classified as close contacts. Staff members are being contacted to determine each one’s exposure. Anyone who visited Bunnings Goulburn on 20 July 2021 between 12:30 – 12:45 is a close contact and must immediately get tested and self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result, and call 1800 943 553 unless they have already been contacted by NSW Health. Anyone who was at KFC Marulan on 20 July 2021 between 13:30 and 13:50 is a close contact and must immediately get tested and self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result, and call 1800 943 553 unless they have already been contacted by NSW Health. In two other Goulburn locations, there was only interaction between the limited staff and the case. Three contacts have been identified and managed by the SNSWLHD Public Health Unit. Testing on these three overnight returned negative results. Southern NSW Local Health District is urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhoea or muscle aches – to self-isolate and seek COVID-19 testing.
