MEMBER for Albury has been directed to isolate at his Bowna home until July 6 because of Sydney's COVID outbreak.
Late on Friday afternoon he was informed he had tested negative, however he has been told by health authorities that regardless he will have to quarantine to July 6.
That follows Mr Clancy having been in Parliament House, which has been declared a COVID exposure site after NSW Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall was diagnosed with the virus.
"Obviously it's important, given the Delta variant, to follow the health advice and take proper precautions," Mr Clancy said.
He also warned others who have been in Sydney to take notice of COVID directives.
"We potentially have people living in our community who work or travel to Sydney regularly so they should be heeding any advice there and monitoring that," Mr Clancy said.
The Liberal MP is working from home but has cancelled social engagements and a visit from Arts Minister Don Harwin planned for next week.
