Four residents test positive to Covid-19

Four residents in the 2256 and 2257 postcode areas have tested positive to Covid-19 in the past two weeks.

And three exposure sites on the Peninsula have been listed in the same period.

Three cases, apparently from the same household in the 2257 postcode area, were reported on August 10,15 and 20, according to the NSW Government's Covid-19 Cases by Location web page.

One case was reported in 2256 postcode area on August 12.

Following the August 10 case, Central Coast Local Health District issued a media release, without identifying the locality, implying the case was "currently in isolation. The source of infection ... is under investigation".

It listed Coles in Deepwater Plaza, Woy Woy, as an exposure site on Monday, August 9, between 8.30am and 9am.

Following the August 12 case, it said that case was "one of two new cases in isolation, with the source of infection under investigation".

On August 14, Woolworths in Peninsula Plaza, Woy Woy, was listed as an exposure site on Sunday, August 8, between 1:10 and 1:55pm and Deepwater Plaza was listed as an exposure site on Wednesday, August 11, between 11:40am and 12:20pm.

Following the August 15 case, Health District staff stated: "Central Coast Local Health District confirms one local resident has tested positive to Covid-19. The case is a household contact of a previously identified case and has been in isolation for their entire infectious period."

Following the August 20 case, Central Coast Local Health District advised that one Central Coast resident, described as "local", had tested positive to Covid-19.

"The case was a household contact of a previously notified case and had been in isolation for their entire infectious period."

None of the Local Health District media releases stated whether the cases were on the Peninsula or elsewhere in the region, and Health District staff did not confirm that the statements in the media releases applied to the Peninsula cases.
