‘For action’: NSW virus alert zones revealed
The list of places attended by people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in New South Wales is growing, with a number of "new case location alerts" issued for the Greater Sydney area and Newcastle area including bars, restaurants, sporting stadiums, schools and shopping centres.
NSW Health issued a public health warning for southwest Sydney this week after a man in his 20s, considered a close contact of a reported case associated with the cluster from the Mounties club in Mount Pritchard, attended three venues in the area while infectious including Westfield Penrith Plaza.
Patrons at six inner-Sydney venues across Redfern, Enmore, Marrickville and the city are being considered close contacts of one of Thursday's new COVID-19 cases - another man aged in his 20s.
An updated public health alert, applying to seven venues, was also issued by the health department after new coronavirus cases were detected in Newcastle.
The Hunter New England Health District is working to determine how a growing family cluster in the area began, including the latest case in a teenage student at St Francis Xavier's College in Hamilton East, being a household contact of another reported case.
On Friday, the health department said the school would be closed for cleaning and contact tracing is underway.
There were 11 new cases of COVID-19 announced in NSW on Friday. One new case was acquired in Victoria and has been in self-isolation while another case - a woman in her 60s from southwestern Sydney - is under investigation.
Nine cases were locally acquired and linked to known cases, including one who attended The Apollo Restaurant at Potts Point and eight close contacts of known cases.
The following list of venues and bus routes have been classified by the health department as "for action".
"Locations are removed when 14 days have passed since the last known date that a confirmed case was associated with the location," NSW Health says.
STAY ISOLATED FOR TWO WEEKS
The health department advises anyone who went to these locations during the time and date indicated to immediately self-isolate for 14 days from the last time they were there.
You should get tested for COVID-19, even if you have no symptoms, and get retested if any symptoms return.
"Even if you get a negative test, you must stay in isolation for 14 days as it can take 14 days before you may show symptoms or test positive," NSW Health says.
