Share Canberra's trusted news:

A COVID warning has been flagged by ACT Health after active coronavirus cases visited locations in Sydney and Shellharbour in the past week. 

According to NSW Health, there was an active COVID-19 case at Shellharbour South Beach and Little Park in between 12pm and 4pm, October 11.

Any ACT residents who have travelled to NSW in the past 14 days must keep up to date with the latest NSW Health alerts on affected locations and health advice, said an ACT Health spokesperson.

Anyone who has recently travelled to Greater Sydney or Shellharbour should be vigilant for even very minor COVID-19 symptoms, and immediately get tested and isolate at home if symptoms develop, they advised. 

ACT Health said the list of locations in NSW, where covid cases have visited, is frequently updated, so it is important to check regularly if you have travelled to NSW in the previous 14 days.

There have been no new cases of COVID-19 recorded in the ACT in the past 24 hours, and the number of negative tests recorded in the ACT is now 101,535.
