Labor candidate Nadia David tests positive to COVID


LABOR’S candidate for Indi tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

“After a full week of community candidate forums and travelling all over the electorate, I tested positive after a routine Rapid Antigen Test on Sunday morning,” Ms David said.

“I notified close contacts and the candidates with whom I attended the Alexandra Community Forum on Friday night and have received kind messages of support from them all.

“At the moment, I feel like I have a cold and I’m hoping that’s as serious as the symptoms get.”

“I am extremely grateful I have been fortunate enough to receive three vaccinatio­ns and I fully expect my brush with COVID will be relatively mild as a result. If anyone has any doubts about getting the third vaccinatio­n, or any vaccinatio­n, I urge you take this virus seriously and protect yourself from serious illness.

“Our hospitals, nurses and doctors will thank you for not needing hospitalis­ation.”

Ms David said she’ll be isolating at home for 7 days in line with Victorian Government requiremen­ts and she hopes to keep campaignin­g online.

“This is just the reality of living with COVID during this election,” she said.
