More COVID virus fragments have been found in Molong.
Residents of the Molong area have been asked to come forward for testing after virus fragments were detected in samples taken from the Molong sewage treatment plant on Friday.
There is one confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Western NSWLHD but they are not connected to the town sewage system, so it is highly likely the fragments are from a resident or visitor.
WNSW Local Health District Chief Executive Scott McLachlan said they were re-establishing the drive-through clinic in Molong, operating from 10am to 2pm on Monday and Tuesday at the old railway station.
He asked for patience if there were queues.
'"Over the last two weeks we tested almost half of the Molong community, which gives us a high degree of confidence, but to be extra sure, we want to offer local residents the chance to be tested or retested," he said.
"Testing is free and no appointment is necessary."
Symptoms associated with COVID-19 include fever, cough, breathing difficulties, sore throat, loss of smell or taste, runny nose, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and fatigue.
