Thirty-eight of these cases were acquired overseas.

Richmond Valley and Kyogle LGAs are not on list.

From Friday, April 3, there will be new hospital rules with a limit of one visitor per patient in all our hospitals.

Byron Shire has also been declared officially off-limts to visitors, with new orders from the NSW Minister for Health and Medical Research, Brad Hazard, yesterday.

The shire will also see a new COVID-19 clinic opening at Byron Central Hospital, operating from Thursday, running seven days a week between 10am and 4pm.

The free clinic will welcome backpackers in the Byron Shire who have any COVID-19 symptoms, even if those symptoms are mild.
