Covid-infected shopper puts bottle shop on alert 500km from Sydney in popular coastal city – as SEVENTEEN new virus-exposed venues in NSW are revealed
A popular Woolworths, Coles and Aldi have been added to a late-night list of Sydney’s ever-growing exposure sites as a Covid-infected shopper puts a bottle shop 500km from the city on high alert.
New South Wales Health has added 17 new virus-exposed venues late on Monday night, including a bottle shop in Coffs Harbour on the state’s Mid-North Coast.
Most of the alerts were issued for Covid-hit ravaged suburbs in south-west Sydney, including a popular Woolworths and a petrol station.
It comes as NSW braces for another day of triple digit daily cases after 105 new locally acquired infections were reported on Sunday, bringing the total number of transmissions to 1,242 since the outbreak began on June 16.
Anyone who attended the Hoey Moey Bottleshop in Coffs Harbour on Thursday July 15 from 3:55pm to 4:10pm has been urged to get tested and isolate for 14 days.
The same advice applies for shoppers who visited the Free Choice in the Fairfield Forum on Saturday July 17 from 9am to 4pm or the Ampol Foodery in Padstow on Tuesday July 6 from 3:45pm to 4:00pm.
A JB Hi-Fi, a Vodafone and an Optus store in Wetherill Park were also exposed to a Covid-infected shopper on Thursday July 15.
