NHILL BP Roadhouse has reopened for trade on Friday, July 23, after a harrowing COVID-19 contact experience.
The Nhill BP Road House was found to be a primary contact location on Tuesday, July 20.
The contact was due to the coronavirus-positive NSW removalists travelling through Victoria and South Australia, making the Nhill BP a tier two exposure site.
It is understood that the removalists had visited this location on July 6, from 10 to 11pm.
The BP issued a statement on Tuesday, July 20, which said it was closed for 24-48 hours for the cleaning protocol.
