EXCLUSIVE: COVID cluster emerges in Wollongong complex


The Wollongong Homeless Hub is under police guard because of a COVID outbreak at the crisis accommodation facility on Keira Street.

Wave FM has received a copy of a letter that was sent to occupants by the Illawarra Shoalhaven Public Health Unit.


"A cluster of people at the complex have recently been confirmed as having Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection," the letter said.

"If you were at 75-79 Keira St Wollongong any time after 4th September 2021, you are considered a close contact.

"You must immediately get tested for COVID-19 and self-isolate.

"Remain in self-isolation until midnight of the 29th September 2021," the letter instructed.

Wave FM understands that police were called to facility yesterday afternoon to enforce compliance.


The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District has acknowledged a request for information from Wave FM but is yet to formally respond.
