Prime Minister Scott Morrison has commended Batemans Bay for its response to the COVID-19 cluster.
Addressing the media in Canberra on Wednesday, July 29, Mr Morrison praised NSW for containing positive cases.
"The response down in Batemans Bay has been particularly welcome," Mr Morrison said.
"I'm pleased to hear the situation there has stabilised significantly.
"And the broader cases that have been identified, they [the government] have moved on extremely fast to ensure they can be contained."
Eight people tested positive to the virus in the Eurobodalla Shire after a cluster was connected to the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club.
Most cases were visitors to the area, however there were three cases still active in the shire on Monday, July 27, a Southern NSW Local Health District spokesperson said.
In response to the outbreak, the Soldiers Club closed its doors for two weeks and all patrons and staff at the club at the specified dates were told to self-isolate for 14 days and seek testing.
Club Malua closed for deep cleaning after a single visitor who tested positive to the virus was found to have visited the club on July 7, 8 and 12.
Club Narooma set up a pop-up testing clinic for staff after the same visitor was found to have also visited their club on July 13.
The Southern NSW Local Health District also opened an additional drive-through COVID-19 testing clinic at Captain Oldrey Park, Broulee between Wednesday and Friday, July 22-24.
A total of 880 tests were conducted in the shire from July 18 to July 20, with 608 recorded at Batemans Bay Hanging Rock and 272 at the Moruya Assessment Clinic.
The district worked with Eurobodalla Shire Council to provide temporary lighting on Monday night to allow the Hanging Rock clinical crew to work into the evening.
The district announced on Tuesday that visitors to Batemans Bay and Moruya District Hospitals were not permitted until further notice.
Many shire businesses and community organisations decided to shut temporarily.
In total, 7359 COVID-19 tests have been completed in the shire.
On Wednesday, NSW recorded 19 new coronavirus cases and QLD declared it would close its borders to all of Greater Sydney from Saturday.
