Albury-Wodonga Health Executive Director Lucy Shanahan says people are doing the right thing, the facilities just can’t keep up.
“We ask people to continue to do the right thing and that is to isolate until they are able to get a test, I’d also like to urge people that if you have been tested in the last four days because you’re aware you have been to an exposure site, you don’t need to come forward for testing again.”
People are being reminded that testing is still available on the NSW side of the border.
