Premier Gladys Berejiklian holds a COVID-19 press conference on Wednesday, September 15.

Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has reported two new COVID-19 cases in the Eurobodalla Shire overnight.

One case was in Batemans Bay, the other in Catalina. Both are close contacts of known Batemans Bay cases.

It takes the Batemans Bay COVID-19 cluster to a total of six cases, the first reported last Monday, September 6.

There are no venues of concern for these cases at this stage, but the community was urged to check the website for updates.

Any new venues of concern found by contact tracers will be announced as soon as they are known.

The district also recorded two new cases in Yass, two in Goulburn and one in Googong overnight.

Most cases were in isolation throughout their infectious period as they were known household or close contacts of existing cases.

The community was asked to be alert for any symptoms including a headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever.

If symptoms appear, people must get tested and isolate immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
