There have been no cases of COVID 19 on the Far South Coast reported today. 

The NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant addressed the public earlier, along with Premier Gladys Berejiklian to discuss the current situation in NSW.

The cluster from the Crossroads Hotel continues to grow and spread. 13 new cases have been recorded in NSW, ten of these are associated with the Casula cluster. 

Listen to what Dr Chant had to say:  

 NSW Health is urging anyone who was at the RSL at Merimbula for dinner last Monday, July 6; and at the Waterfront Cafe at Merimbula for breakfast on Tuesday 7 July, to watch for respiratory symptoms or fever, and if they occur, isolate and get tested for COVID-19 right away.

Both premises shut yesterday to allow staff to get tested for COVID-19 and for cleaning. The businesses were notified yesterday morning that  a Victorian, or Victorians who have COVID  19 had been on the premises.

Victoria has recorded 270 new cases of COVID-19 and has banned all international arrivals. The NSW and Victorian border remains closed.
