The ABC Coffs Coast reports that the owners of the construction site attended by a COVID-19 positive case two weeks ago says their workers have now received three rounds of negative test results.
The workers had to continue continue to isolate until 11.59pm last night, Thursday, 28 July 2021.
Mobile testing services have been available for the 120 workers at the Shoreline construction venue to minimise community exposure.
Shoreline spokesperson Steve Gooley says 99% of the company’s staff working on the site are North Coast locals, and the company plans to employ Queensland and NT workers for the remaining jobs. “Even though there are protocols in place for people from Sydney, we won’t be using anyone from that area”, Mr Gooley said.
