HEALTH Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith is urging Canberrans against travelling to two areas in NSW where coronavirus cases have been identified. 

“Liverpool and Cambelltown are the areas of concern,” says Ms Stephen-Smith, who is asking Canberrans to avoid travelling to these areas unless it is absolutely urgent to do so.

“Anyone who has travelled to these areas is asked to be vigilant about their health and to go and get tested if they have symptoms.” 

Ms Stephen-Smith also warns that future travel plans may need to be changed and says: “This situation is rapidly evolving.”

“If you’re considering travelling to another jurisdiction you do need to be aware that the circumstances at this point can change very quickly and you could be caught up in some changes,” she says.

“That particularly applies to people who might be travelling to Sydney or into NSW at this point in time. We’re obviously urging people not to travel into those particular regions unless you need to just as a precaution at this point in time.

“Please keep an eye on the advice from ACT and NSW Health if you are intending to travel.”
