Cunningham candidate grounded by COVID


Labor's candidate for Cunningham has been forced into COVID isolation just 15 days out from the Federal Election.

Alison Byrnes said she returned a positive RAT result yesterday and has had a PCR test for confirmation.

"I will be isolating until the result but will continue to engage with our community as much as possible from home in the meantime," she said.

Byrnes is asking anyone that she has been in contact with on the campaign trail to monitor for symptoms.
