The good news didn’t last long as a new community case is confirmed.

After an earlier announcement that no new cases had been recorded overnight, WA has seen a new local case in the community just confirmed.

The WA Health Department has just recorded one new local case of COVID-19 in the community.

The person presented for a COVID-19 test yesterday as they had attended one of the restaurant locations visited by the confirmed COVID-19 local cases.

The person is now working closely with the contact tracing team, so public exposure sites will be updated.
