Byron, Tweed and Kempsey Shires to enter lockdown after positive case visited area

Byron, Tweed and Kempsey Shires to enter lockdown after positive case visited area

Byron, Tweed and Kempsey Shires will re-enter lockdown for seven days after a positive coronavirus case visited the area.

The lockdown will begin on Tuesday at 5pm, Health Minister Brad Hazzard said.

“Unfortunately we've had some cases in the northern part of the state, in Tweed, and Byron Bay and in Kempsey,” he said.

“And I certainly encourage everyone those areas, take it very seriously. So far those areas have been relatively safe.”

Byron mayor Michael Lyon told NCA NewsWire before the press conference: “It’s inevitable, I can’t see it going any other way.”

Fragments of the virus have also been found in sewage catchments in Ballina and Wardell, also in northern NSW.

There are currently no active cases in those areas, sparking fears of more cases to come.

More to come.
