We have been informed that on Saturday 8th August, two patrons from Sydney who were holidaying in Jervis Bay for the weekend dined at a restaurant in Huskisson. As of Monday 10th August these patrons tested positive for COVID-19. At this time none of the restaurant staff have tested positive for COVID-19. The restaurant is now closed for 2 weeks and the staff are all isolating.
The matter is now being handled by the NSW Department of Health. They will be directly contacting anyone who was at the restaurant during the ‘at risk’ hours.
The restaurant was 100% compliant with all rules and guidelines regarding COVID-19 and their procedures were verified and approved by local police during a routine inspection on 8th August, and the NSW Department of Health on 11th August.
Our thoughts are with the restaurant owners, staff and their families. We look forward to the venue re-opening again soon and hope to see many locals supporting this business.
This is a timely reminder to us all to be very careful regarding our own safety, and the safety and well-being of others.
