Member for Eden-Monaro Kristy McBain is urging people across the Eden-Monaro to get tested and to get the vaccine. Fragments of COVID-19 have now been detected in Merimbula’s sewage three times, Cooma’s sewage twice as well as Bega, Eden, Moruya and Thredbo’s sewage. Ms McBain said although there are no known cases in these areas, the detection of fragments in the sewage could mean there are unknown cases in the community. “I know how important it is for everyone to keep our communities safe,” Ms McBain said. “The last thing anyone wants is for an outbreak in our area. This is why it is vitally important that anyone with even the mildest of symptoms gets tested and if you haven’t already, please get vaccinated. “Last week, after COVID-19 was detected in the sewage, I went into Merimbula and got tested and this week I was able to get my first vaccine dose. “Our region has been heavily impacted by these lockdowns with many businesses struggling to get by. “This is why I’m pleading with everyone to please do your bit, so we can get our region open as soon as possible. Ms McBain received her vaccination from Main Street Medical Centre in Merimbula and said she couldn’t thank our health professionals enough for their efforts in protecting our communities. “Our GPs, pharmacists and nurses are doing an incredible job working round the clock to test and vaccinate people,” Ms McBain said. “They’ve been on the front line throughout this whole pandemic, they’re the experts and they are doing everything they can to keep us safe, so we need to do the same. “With spring here, a lot of people may think their symptoms are hay fever – but even if this is the case, please get tested. It’s a quick and painless test and you’ll likely get your results within 24 hours. “Let’s keep our communities safe.” To find a testing clinic near you head to the NSW Health website here. To book a vaccination speak to your local GP or pharmacist of head online to the covid-19 vaccination booking website. Read more: Eurobodalla remains in lockdown
