South coast residents are being urged to remain alert for covid-19 symptoms despite the state recording 13 days without a locally acquired infection.

The virus has been detected in sewage in Bateman's Bay, but health officials say the discovery could be the result of a previous case that is no longer infectious.

People who live and work in the area are  being advised to get tested if they experience any cold-like symptoms.
