Hunter New England Health no longer providing local COVID-19 case numbers

The Hunter New England Local Health District (HNELHD) will not be providing daily updates on local COVID-19 cases (by local government area) starting tomorrow, Saturday, January 15.

"With the centralisation of rapid antigen reporting at a state level, our local case numbers are no longer an accurate reflection of COVID-19 across the Hunter New England region - and from today we'll cease providing a local case update," a HNELHD spokesperson said.

"However, we will continue to report daily hospitalisation, ICU numbers and other important public health messaging to protect you and your loved ones from COVID-19 on our social media channels.
