You may have already become aware that Hutchies' Castle Residences site in the Sydney CBD has been closed today due to the identification yesterday of a positive COVID-19 case who likely worked on site whilst unknowingly infectious last week.
The worker is a tiler from an affected LGA who had been complying with NSW Health's testing and vaccination requirements. Once identified, the site team took the appropriate step of immediately contacting NSW Health for guidance and informing Hutchies' directors.
Whilst the team works through the details and does what it can to assist in NSW Health's contact tracing process, the site has been closed with all relevant parties notified and directed to get tested.
Hutchies will provide an update once more information is available. Please take this news as an opportunity to review all current site processes and your COVIDSafe plan to ensure that your project is strictly adhering to all NSW Government required measures on site.
Hutchies' offices remain closed except for exceptional circumstances where working from home is not reasonably practicable, which is at the discretion of Team Leaders.
