  • Two shopping centres, a Commonwealth bank and an entire flight high-risk sites
  • Alert for anyone who visited Roselands Shopping Centre on June 28, 29 and 30
  • Shoppers who visited should check for relevant times to see if they were there

  • Commonwealth Bank in Roselands Shopping Centre also exposed to Covid-19

Two major shopping centres, a Commonwealth Bank and an entire plane has been added to Sydney’s ever-developing list of exposure sites. 

Sydneysiders are seven days into a 14-day to curb the spread of the highly-infectious Indian Delta variant of the virus – with the city recording 16 infections on Sunday.  

Customers who visited the Roselands Shopping Centre in the city’s south-west on June 28, June 29 or June 30 have been asked to get tested and self-isolate immediately. 

This advice also applies for any shoppers who visited the Roseland centre’s Priceline or Kmart on June 29 or the Coles supermarket on June 30. 

The Roselands branch of Commonwealth Bank was also exposed to the virus on June 28 from 8am to 5pm, June 29 from 8am to 5pm and June 30 from 8am to 3:30pm.  

NSW Health has also sent out an alert to passengers who flew from the Gold Coast to Sydney on a previously announced Virgin flight, as multiple Covid-19 transmissions have occurred on this plane. 

All passengers who were onboard the VA524 Virgin flight that departed the Gold Coast at 1:26pm and arrived in Sydney at 2:47pm on June 26 are considered close contacts. 

Passengers have been asked to vigilantly monitor for symptoms and remain in isolation for 14 days, regardless of their Covid-19 test results. 

Any customer who visited the Ostar International bathroom supply store in Revesby on June 26 from 1:15pm to 1:30pm or Bendo’s Premium Meats in Five Dock on June 29 from 10:30am to 11:15am, are also considered close contacts of the virus. 

Residents who visited Big W in the Eastgardens Shopping Centre on June 24, the TAB in Gladesville on June 26 or Panetta Marcato in Marrickville on the same day are considered casual contacts of a positive case.

Two Coles supermarkets have also been marked as high-risk sites, the first in Clemton Park on June 27 and the other in Randwick on June 28.  

Exposed customers must immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received. 

The next few days in New South Wales are ‘critical’ according to officials, as the state continues to record new cases who have been infectious in the community.
