The total number of identified COVID-19 positive patients in the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) remains at 45. There are 43 recovered cases, and currently no hospitalisations. A total of 8204 tests have been performed across the region.
The Murrumbidgee COVID-19 Mobile Testing Clinic continues its trek across the region, while the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) pleads for people to come forward to be tested.
While the mobile clinic is visiting many locations across the region, MLHD urges people not to wait for a visit, but to call the COVID hotline to book an appointment if they feel the slightest bit unwell. “It’s imperative that people get tested,” said MLHD’s Health Emergency Operations Centre Manager Emma Field. “We are not sure why people are not coming forward for testing, whether they don’t want to isolate for a couple of days while they await the results, or if they just think ‘it can’t happen to them’.”
Anyone with any respiratory symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, dry cough or sore (scratchy) throat to call the COVID hotline to book in for a test. Tests undertaken at any of the MLHD’s testing clinics are FREE and completely confidential. People are required to self-isolated after the test until their result is received, this usually takes around 48 hours and can be received via text message.
Call the Murrumbidgee COVID-19 Hotline on 1800 831 099 (open every day from 7am – 9pm) for a confidential over the phone assessment. The Murrumbidgee Mobile Testing Clinic is in Lockhart and Urana today and will visit Hillston tomorrow.
