The list of exposure sites across Canberra has continued to grow with new locations being added across Nicholls, Mitchell and Gungahlin.

Anyone who was at the Gold Creek School, including early childhood learning, on 9 August between 8:25 am and 5:00 pm, or on 10 August between 8:00 am and 3:10 pm is considered a close contact.

The Downer community centre is also an exposure site. Anyone who visited the centre on 8 August between 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm is also considered a close contact.

Close contacts must notify ACT Health, get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days regardless of the test result.

People who were at the under-14 girls Ainslie Red v Belconnen Black AFL game on 8 August between 9:00 am and 11:30 am need to monitor for symptoms.

No Trams

Gee, no exposure sites named in Tuggeranong. I wonder why?

Ummm I’m going to go out on a limb here, CapitalRetro, and suggest it’s because none of the cases identifed have travelled to Tuggeranong. Do you have facts to support an alternative reason?

Can you please move a little further out on the limb?

OK, CapitalRetro, so no facts to support your usual negativity then, eh? (But I’ll concede I had a chuckle at your comment)

God’s will, obviously.
