Welcome to our Lane Cove Local News week in review, where we tell you what has happened over the last seven days in Lane Cove. This week the kids of Lane Cove celebrated Halloween in force. It was nice to be able to mix with your neighbours. It also saw the re-start of events with a charity art show, the opening of 12ft Lane Cove Skiff Club’s new boat shed and rigging deck, just three years on from the fire that destroyed the old building.

Lane Cove still has Active COVID19 Cases
This week the Lane Cove Council Local Government Area recorded three cases. There were four cases in the last seven days.
Make sure you scan in and check your text messages. Service NSW will notify you by text if you have visited a COVID19 case. This week a positive case visited the Lane Cove Newsagency and this is what one ITC reader saw on their check in history on their Services NSW app.
COVID-19 cases and tests by local government area as at 8 pm 02/11/2021 Last 4 Weeks Data
|Cases*||Cases with unknown source||Total tests||Test rate (per 1000)|
The tables show the location of residence by Local Government Area (LGA) or local health district (LHD) of locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the last four weeks. It is based on the date the person first developed symptoms. When no date of symptom onset is available (it is either under investigation by public health staff or the person tested positive without showing symptoms), the date of the positive test is used. Infections are not always acquired in the place of residence as people often travel outside their area for many reasons (e.g. work, school and shopping). Cases without an NSW residential address and people who were exposed interstate or overseas are not shown. Case counts may vary over time due to ongoing investigations and case reviews.*Includes all locally acquired cases (known and unknown source)
The data below the number of active cases (active cases are cases where a person is in isolation and is being managed by NSW Health)
