Since the initial advisement of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) we have been continually developing our COVID-19 preparedness and continue to closely monitor the situation at Hurstville Private Hospital.
NSW Health was notified late last night of a new case of COVID-19 in a person (security personnel) who works at two Sydney hotels which provide hotel quarantine for returned travellers.
This person has visited the Hudson Coffee located on the ground floor of Hurstville Private Hospital. We have spoken with NSW Public Health Unit this evening. At this time NSW Health has reassured that the Hudson Coffee Shop is considered a low risk location. The coffee shop has undergone a terminal clean and is safe for use.
Persons who have visited the Hudson Coffee Shop between 0830-0900 hours on Monday 8, Tuesday 9, Wednesday 10, Thursday 11 and Friday 12 March 2021 are to monitor for symptoms and if develop symptoms of Covid-19:
• get tested immediately and self-isolate until you receive a negative result
• continue to watch for COVID-19 symptoms and if any symptoms occur, get tested again.
