'Stay calm' despite rising cases, says Crouch

Central Coast Parliamentary Secretary Mr Adam Crouch has urged residents to "stay calm, despite cases rising each day".

"I acknowledge the frustration felt by many across the Central Coast due to having limited testing labs open to the public at this time, two of which are the State-run clinics at Gosford and Wyong Hospitals.

"While I apologise for the delays, it is important to remember that the NSW Government has no jurisdiction over whether or not private testing clinics are open.

"Despite this, the NSW State Government is committed to providing whatever assistance, in conjunction with Central Coast Local Health District, is required in order to support our community during this time.

"Testing capacity across the Central Coast and broader NSW is currently under enormous pressure and to assist in reducing this pressure, the only people getting a PCR (nose and throat swab) should be those who have Covid-19 symptoms, live in a household with a confirmed Covid-19 positive case or have been in a venue which NSW Health has advised there has been high transmission.

"Over the coming days we will begin to see additional private testing clinics reopen from one end of the Central Coast to the other.

"We have done an outstanding job as a region to have high vaccination numbers.

"This is being reflected in the low rates of hospital admissions."
