Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A passenger on board a Melbourne-to-Sydney train has been loaded into an ambulance and transported to hotel quarantine after displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
The man was on board an XPT train from Victoria with 59 others that arrived at Central Station on Saturday morning. He had boarded the train in regional NSW.
The train arrived at 7.30am and the man told health authorities he was not feeling well and had presented with flu-like symptoms, NSW Health told NCA NewsWire.
“He did all the right things,” a NSW Health spokesperson said.
It is understood he was then taken to an inner-city hotel to isolate while awaiting a test result.

The spokesperson said it was important to note the man was a NSW resident and was not arriving from Victoria.
NCA NewsWire has contacted NSW Ambulance and Transport for NSW for comment.
Passengers arriving on interstate trains to Central are being temperature checked by nurses before exiting the station.
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard lashed a Victorian man from a virus hot spot who arrived in Sydney by train on Friday, saying it should serve as a warning to others.
