NSW Health have announced a surge in COVID test availability for the NSW snowfields over the next 7 days.
As the outbreak spreads in and around Sydney there is obviously plenty of potential for infected people to have travelled to the snowfields – including from the most affected areas before yesterday’s travel bans came into force.
Here is the detail from them:
