The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District has confirmed 51 cases of the COVID-19 Virus, as the pandemic continues.
The majority are over 60 and most are mild to moderate and in home isolation.
Dr Bruce Ashford told a media gathering outside Wollongong hospital yesterday they have been preparing and resourcing, and have asked people to re-think visits to Wollongong Hospital.
Dr Ashford says they've closed Wolllongong's Crown Street doors, and the entrance that comes off the Emergency Department waiting rooms, in an effort to control hospital 'traffic'.
While visitors to Shoalhaven hospital have been limited to two.
