A prisoner in custody at Nowra Police Station last week has since tested positive for COVID-19.
According to a police spokeswoman, the man was in custody at the station on July 29.
"He was transferred into the custody of Corrective Services NSW and returned a positive result after undergoing a test," the spokeswoman said.
The police station has since undergone a deep clean.
The prisoner tested positive on Wednesday at the Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre at Silverwater.
The 36-year-old was housed in a single cell and subject to the appropriate COVID-19 protocols and has since been placed into a designated isolation area.
Meanwhile, Goulburn's jail has been placed into lockdown on Wednesday with some prisoners moved into isolation, after a staff member was deemed to be a close contact of someone known to have COVID-19.
"The officer had attended the centre briefly today while transporting inmates to the centre," a Corrective Services NSW spokeswoman said.
"These inmates have been placed into isolation and will be tested for COVID-19 as a precaution.
"The staff member has been directed to go for immediate COVID-19 testing and isolate in accordance with NSW Health advice."
