Updated: Guests test positive for COVID following UnLtd’s Big Dream charity event

Update: As of Saturday 27 November, NSW Health has alerted attendees of the Big Dream that they are now “a casual contact of someone who has tested positive to Covid-19” and as a result must get tested immediately and self-isolate until they get a negative result. Both Mumbrella’s staff who attended the event have been tested and registered a negative result. 

Two people who attended last week’s Big Dream Event by UnLtd have tested positive to COVID-19.

NSW Health has been texting and emailing the 650 plus guests who attended, warning them to be alert for coronavirus symptoms.

UnLtd’s statement read: “Both guests started showing symptoms on Monday, got tested (one on Monday and one on Tuesday), and advised us of their positive results today (Wednesday).

“Based on advice from NSW Health, a person who tests positive is required to notify anyone they have been in contact with in the two days before they got sick. Based on this advice, the Big Dream event would not be included in the formal notification process, however we wanted to inform all guests as a precaution, and to enable you to make any necessary personal decisions.

“As always, if you are feeling unwell, or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms (fact sheet attached) please get a COVID test and self-isolate until you receive a negative result.”

The statement concluded: “The cases are both currently with the Infectious Disease Department of NSW Health and have also been lodged with Safe Work NSW. Contact tracers will be doing their job now to determine next steps and close contacts.

“If you are contacted by NSW Health please follow their instructions. We will also provide any further updates we receive.”

Mumbrella’s two team members at the event are monitoring for symptoms.
