Lismore plunged back into lockdown after new Covid cases emerge

Another area of northern New South Wales has been plunged back into lockdown after new infections popped up there on Sunday.

Lismore is now under stay at home restrictions again until October 11, when those who are fully vaccinated are given more freedoms.

It comes after two new cases were diagnosed in the area in Sunday’s figures, as part of six new cases in the northern part of the New South Wales.


They’re linked to the Kyogle cluster.

There were also another three cases in the Tweed area, but they haven’t been forced into another lockdown just yet.

The total number of active infections in northern New South Wales is now 28.

NSW Health announced the Lismore lockdown on Facebook late on Sunday.

Authorities are expected to provide more information today.

Meantime, Queensland will likely kick the Lismore region out of the border bubble today as well, now that it’s back in lockdown.

Queensland Health is expected to confirm that later this morning.
