Current information regarding a case of COVID-19 

14 March 2020

Thank you for sharing your concerns and seeking accurate information.

We have been working closely with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to respond to a case of COVID-19 linked to Golden Plains Festival.

The DHHS has now completed its investigation. The DHHS has determined that the individual to which the case relates was not infectious during the festival.

As a result, the festival is not considered a public exposure site and no further public health action is required by festival attendees, including workers, volunteers and artists, in relation to the case.

We appreciate and respect the commitment by the DHHS and others to make thorough assessments in order to provide accurate information.

Thank you, too, for continuing to look after yourself and others.

At this stage, there are no further updates scheduled.
