COVID-19 Screening for South Australian Arrivals
The Far West LHD will be screening people who have arrived in Broken Hill from South Australia as part of NSW Health response to the emergence of the Parafield COVID-19 cluster in Adelaide.
The screening includes temperature and symptom checking for arrivals from South Australia via flights and buses, starting immediately.
Everybody who arrives in Broken Hill from South Australia, by any mode of transport, is asked to monitor for even the mildest of symptoms and get tested and isolate if they appear. They must remain in isolation until a negative result is received, in line with routine advice for all people in NSW.
Arrivals are also being alerted to a number of venues of concern in Adelaide. Arrivals are being asked to check if they attended any of those venues.
Anyone arriving in Broken Hill from Adelaide can seek screening and testing at the Drive Thru clinic at BH Community Health Centre (Crystal Street) Monday to Friday from 9am to 11am, and also at the Thomas Street COVID-19 clinic, seven days a week from 10am to 8pm. Screening is also available at all of the Far West LHD's facilities.
The details of venue locations and times of concern, and associated health advice, are available from SA Health - Contact Tracing. People are urged to regularly check this site for updates, as this is still an unfolding situation.
