The Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) cannot at this stage give a precise location for the confirmed case of coronavirus in the Cootamundra-Gundagai local government area.
Nor is it specifying the exact method of infection, saying only that the local person was diagnosed "after travelling overseas or being in contact with a confirmed case".
MLHD announced this morning there was one confirmed case in the Cootamundra-Gundagai area, who had experienced mild to moderate symptoms and is being managed at home with the support of MLHD and a GP.
The person has been interviewed to trace their movements while they were infectious. If he or she has been in close contact with any individuals, those individuals would have to self-isolate for 14 days.
The MLHD says practicing hand hygiene and social distancing remain the most effective ways to reduce transmission of the virus.
It recommends people follow NSW Health advice around social distancing and self-isolation to slow the spread of the virus.
"Reducing contact between people unless absolutely necessary, especially those in our population who may be more vulnerable or susceptible to the illness because of age or weakened immunity, is critical to slowing the spread and impact of COVID-19," MLHD cluster manager Kerry Lindeman said.
