Two areas in regional NSW will be plunged into lockdown from 6pm on Friday for seven days after a positive Covid case was discovered.  

The Glen Innes and Hilltop local government areas will be placed under stay at home orders from Friday at 6pm, NSW Health announced.

This follows a positive Covid case in Glen Innes LGA on Thursday after an essential worker returned to their home in Sydney. While they are now isolating at home, the residents was infectious in the community for three days.

NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant and an independent panel of medical experts reviewed information relevant to the case in Glen Innes and determined a seven day lockdown be imposed in order to protect the community.

Everyone in these LGAs must stay at home unless it is for essential reasons.

These essential reasons include shopping for food, medical care, getting vaccinated, compassionate needs, exercise and work or tertiary education if you can’t work or study at home.

Residents who are fully vaccinated may gather outdoors in groups of up to five for exercise or outdoor recreation as long as everyone above the age of 16 are fully vaccinated. 

Government officials are asking the community to come forward and get tested. 

A strong response to testing as well as high vaccination numbers will determine whether the lockdown is extended beyond a week.

NSW Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall posted an announcement about the lockdown to Facebook on Friday afternoon, saying he wanted to give residents ‘as much notice as possible’ about the impending lockdown.

‘I am very sorry and realise this was not the news many of you were wanting to hear, especially small business owners, and I fully appreciate the stress and strain this will place on you,’ he wrote. 

There have been three confirmed exposure sites in Glen Innes. Anyone who attended the venues must get tested immediately and isolate until a negative test result is received. 

This follows 1,284 new local cases of Covid-19 and 12 deaths recorded in NSW on Friday.

There are currently 1,245 cases of Covid in hospital, 228 people in intensive care, and 112 people require a ventilator.

Currently, 80.7 per cent of over-16s have received a first dose of the vaccine and 49.6 per cent are fully vaccinated.  

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian also announced on Friday returning travellers from overseas may soon be able to quarantine at home instead of in the hotel system.

The trial will allow 175 fully vaccinated people accredited by the Therapeutic Goods Administration over four weeks to quarantine at home for 7 days instead of 14. 

Participants in the test are selected before they arrive in Australia and will be transported directly from the airport to their homes by health authorities who will closely monitor their movements. 

NSW Police will also conduct one random physical compliance check each night with participants subject to random local check-ins using live facial verification three times a day.     

The system is likely to be expanded by the government if it is successful to the broader public once 80 per cent of the population is fully vaccinated. 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison anticipates the state and federal government run program will allow more Australians to come home and boost the supply of workers from overseas.
