Northern NSW Local Health District Chief Executive, Wayne Jones, thanked the community for their support and engagement with the public health orders restricting movement over the past few weeks.
“It’s pleasing to see the numbers of new cases in our region slowing, and I want to acknowledge the efforts that have been made by our local residents in helping bring this about,” Mr Jones said.
“I encourage everyone to continue with handwashing and physical distancing which have been working so well to date.
“As the hospital level, we’re continuing to prepare for any increase in positive cases that may occur over the coming months, and our staff are doing a great job in adapting to new directives and in some cases, new roles, as our response evolves.”
