Katrina Ward, acting CEO Walgett and Brewarrina AMS, confirmed vaccination rates have increased in both regional NSW communities since the outbreak of COVID 19 in the area.

Katrina Ward confirmed the people who have tested positive were self-isolating in their homes and the community has received mobile homes to increase quarantine capacity.

One week and half following the Walgett Brewarrina Covid 19 outbreak, at least 79% percent of the population have had their 1st dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and 50% have been double-vaccinated.

The local infections are linked to two major events:

  • People who came from other areas to attended a funeral
  • Contractors out of Sydney
