There are now 51 venues across NSW that have active COVID-19 health alerts in place, with many residents forced into self-isolation.

One of the latest venues to be hit by coronavirus cases is the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club at Waverley.

Of the seven new COVID-19 cases confirmed in NSW on Thursday, two visited the Legion Club, with a case reported the day before attending the club.

One of the three cases attended the club on multiple occasions while infectious, with NSW Health working to identify members who attended the venue at the same times.

Contact tracing and investigations into the source of the original infection are under way.
