UPDATE: Casino in lockdown, new venues of concern

Susanna Freymark


Stay-at-home orders for Casino go into effect from midnight tonight because of an increased covid health risk.

This stay-at-home order also applies to anyone who has been in Casino since September 24.

 Everyone must stay at home unless it is for an essential reason, which includes shopping for food, medical care, getting vaccinated, compassionate needs, exercise and work or tertiary education if you can’t work or study at home.

 NSW Health will continue to  monitor the evolving situation in Casino.

The orders are for Casino (referred to as a suburb by NSW Public Health) only and not for other areas of Richmond Valley and oddly does not include North Casino.
