Warwick Farm Stable Staff COVID-19 Scare

Thursday, 16th July 2020

Following a COVID-19 scare at Warwick Farm Racecourse in Sydney yesterday, the racing industry will be hugely relieved after three of stable-hands returned negative tests to the pandemic overnight (a fourth result is pending but expected to be negative). According to racenet.com.au, the quartet had attended the Crossroads Hotel – now thought to be connected to 32 COVID-19 in the region – and self-reported the situation to Racing NSW. Chief steward Mark van Gestel advised dailytelegraph.com.au of the results, and said, “In accordance with the protocols they immediately notified us of their attendance there and they’re currently self-isolating and there’s no known positives at Warwick Farm… We’ve taken advice from our biosecurity expert in terms of what we need to do in regards to self-isolation and they’ve said considering the tests are negative we don’t need to take any further action.”
