The Coles Express service station has been deep cleaned and two service station staff are being considered as casual contacts, Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has confirmed.

They are in isolation until they receive a negative test result.

On July 13, Goulburn registered a positive COVID case after a man, who was reportedly a painter on the $150 million Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment, was infectious while at work on Friday, July 9 and was isolating from the following day. He had travelled from Fairfield in southwest Sydney.

Residents are urged to check the NSW Government website regularly, as the list of venues of concern and relevant health advice are being updated as investigations continue.

Southern NSW Local Health District is urging anyone feeling unwell - even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhoea or muscle aches - to self-isolate and seek COVID-19 testing.

If you are eligible, SNSWLHD urges to get vaccination as soon as possible. There are more than 100 NSW vaccination clinics and outreach locations across the state.

To help stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • If you are unwell, get tested and isolate right away - don't delay.
  • Wash your hands regularly. Take hand sanitiser with you when you go out.
  • Keep your distance. Leave 1.5 metres between yourself and others.
  • Wear a mask at indoor venues, especially if you can't physically distance
