The Murrumbidgee Local Health District's cross-border operation with Victorian health authorities continues to test for potential COVID-19 exposures in the western Riverina.
NSW Health is tracking down members of the Tooleybuc Manangatang Football Netball Club who attended a sporting event in Cohuna, Victoria on May 22 where a confirmed COVID-19 case was present.
In the two days since sending a mobile testing clinic to Tooleybuc, 124 people came forward for testing.
MLHD will be deploying the COVID-19 mobile testing clinic to Mulwala, Tocumwal and Berrigan this week to support residents along the border to be tested.
COVID-19 Coordinator Emma Field said members of the public are advised to minimise travel, increase personal awareness around hand hygiene and practice social distancing.
