New clinic set up in Cannonvale as NSW COVID cases rise

A temporary testing clinic will be set up in Cannonvale as the number of COVID cases in New South Wales continues to climb.

A coronavirus cluster on Sydney’s Northern Beaches grew to 83 cases on Monday as the Queensland border slammed shut to people from the Greater Sydney region.

In response to the outbreak, a temporary clinic will be open at the Cannonvale Community Health Centre on Altman Ave from 9am to 3pm on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A decision on whether the clinic will remain open later in the week will be made on Wednesday.

Testing is free and no appointment or referral is required.

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of smell or taste, diarrhoea or vomiting is urged to be tested.
