The township of Gundagai has been ordered to stay vigilant after Victoria’s positive COVID case, who was infected during a visit to the northern beaches, passed through the area before heading home to Victoria.
A statement from NSW Health revealed the infected Victorian had been to a health food restaurant (details below) in the Murrumbidgee area and asked all casual contacts to self isolate.
Central West city Orange is also on alert after a second virus case was linked to a western Sydney healthcare worker, whose source of infection is still under investigation.
A close contact of the worker, who travelled through Orange last weekend, has since tested positive to COVID-19 after visiting Orange Central Square Shopping Centre.
Earlier, coronavirus alerts were issued for restaurants, gyms and shops across Sydney including in Alexandria, Paddington, on the North Shore and in the western suburbs.
A statement from NSW Health said residents should get tested regardless of “the slightest symptoms”.
“NSW Health urges anyone in NSW with even the mildest symptoms, such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, to come forward immediately for testing, then isolate until they receive a negative result,” a statement read.
NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant confirmed on Monday morning the outbreak rose by 15, taking the total number of people linked to the Avalon cluster to 83.
She said the Rose Hotel of Australia had emerged as a concern, and urged anyone who visited the Erskineville pub on December 15 between 7.00pm and 9.00pm to self-isolate and get tested immediately.
Dr Chant also identified The Salon for Hair at Turramurra as another site of “added urgency”, which is now linked to five known cases from the cluster.
