A Cooma Road petrol station has been listed as a case location in Narrabri.
The BP at Cooma Road is listed as having an exposure date and time of Tuesday, September 7, from 8pm to 8.05pm.
Anyone who visited the venue at this time is asked to get tested immediately and self-isolate until a negative result is received.
“If your date of exposure at this venue occurred in the last four days, you must get another test on day five from the date of exposure.
“Wear a mask around others and limit your movements until you get another negative result. You should continue to monitor for symptoms and if any symptoms occur, get tested again.”
Speaking to The Courier about the case location, Inspector Robert Dunn said it was identified with the cooperation of the venue which has been subject to deep cleaning.
The release of the location as a venue visited by a positive case was delayed due to incorrect information supplied to contact tracers, he said.

“It remains the role of the NSW Police Force to protect the community, including the publication of factual information when it is received,” Insp Dunn said.
Insp Dunn reassured the community that the exposure time was very limited.
