ACT Health is calling on anyone who caught bus number 31 from Dickson to Kaleen, on March 17, to self-quarantine after a person on the bus has been confirmed to have the coronavirus.
The bus, in particular, departed Dickson interchange at about 3.50pm. It was scheduled to leave Dickson interchange at 3.33pm but was running late. All passengers on that bus are required to self-quarantine until March 31 and should contact the Communicable Disease Control Section of ACT Health on 5124 9213 for more information.
The passenger is one of seven new cases confirmed today (March 24). The new cases include two males and five females, aged between 21 and 75.
ACT Health says all new cases are linked to overseas travel.
“We are also trying to identify a number of close contacts who travelled on public transport with one of the previous confirmed cases,” ACT Health say.
There are now 39 confirmed virus cases in the ACT. Three of these are in hospital in a stable condition.
Flight details of the new cases will soon be uploaded to the health.act.gov.au
