No exposure sites 14.10


The Barwon South West Public Health Unit has declared the Portland area to have no exposure sites linked to the current COVID cluster.

Three people all from the same household in Portland were identified on Tuesday as having COVID-19.

Portland District Health acting CEO Karena Prevett said the lack of local exposure sites was good news but people needed to remain vigilant.

We continue to encourage the community to continue to get tested if they are experiencing COVID symptoms such as fever, dry cough and tiredness to isolate and get tested as soon as possible,” Ms Prevett said.

There will be only one testing clinic location tomorrow Thursday October 14 at the PDH

Fever Clinic from 10am – 4pm.

“This will be reviewed as needed and the community notified via our social media if there’s any change,” Ms Prevett said.

She encouraged people to continue the region’s good vaccination rates. “Our best defence for our community is for vaccinations,” she said.

On October 11, 93.6 per cent of people in the Glenelg-Southern Grampians region had their first dose and 69 per cent were fully vaccinated.
