Covid-19 update: Increased surveillance and testing for City of Sydney east

Parts of the City have been recently identified by NSW Health as areas for increased surveillance and testing for Covid-19.

Affected suburbs

Testing is particularly important in Sydney east, which covers Sydney, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Woolloomooloo, Potts Point, Rushcutters Bay, Elizabeth Bay and Centennial Park.

NSW Health is requesting that if you live in or have visited these suburbs in the past two weeks you should monitor for symptoms. If even mild symptoms develop - like a runny nose, sore throat, cough, or loss of taste and smell - self-isolate and get tested.

It's still safe to visit

You can still visit our local area, just maintain physical distancing, good hygiene and wear a mask where you cannot maintain a physical distance.

We are working closely with NSW Health to ensure the health and safety of our residents and visitors to our area.
