COVID – 19 Sewerage Test Results 

Good news for the community of Trangie

Following the detection of COVID -19 fragments in the Trangie sewerage system, the additional testing undertaken over past few days has come back with a negative reading.

‘I know there has been understandable anxiety since the first report of traces of COVID -19 in Trangie’s sewerage and this will come as a great relief to our community, however this should not stop every resident from being vigilant and to continue to follow Public Health Orders and restrictions,’ said Clr Craig Davies, Narromine Shire Council Mayor.

Everyone is being urged to monitor for symptoms and if they appear, immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received. Drive through testing continues at Narromine Showground and Trangie MPS. Trangie MPS will cease drive through testing after Friday 3 September. Anyone requiring a COVID – 19 after this date, in Trangie, is asked to call ahead on 5581 9200 to make an appointment for a test. 

It is encouraging to observe the vaccination rates increasing noticeably across the Narromine Local Government Area over the past few weeks, with first dose vaccinations at 69.5% and second vaccinations at 21% of the total population. 

The walk-in clinics conducted by NSW Health and the Australian Defence Force in Narromine and Trangie were well received by the wider community. Follow up clinics are scheduled for Trangie on 18 September 2021 and Narromine 19 September 2021, added Clr Davies.

Clr Davies urges everyone in the community not to forget those living alone and to reach out and support each other during this challenging time.

The community is encouraged to regularly check Council’s social media channels for any updates regarding Council’s services and notifications.
