The remaining two cases were already reported cases who got the infection from the Planet Fitness gym.
Testing has been ramped up in Sydney’s south-west with 3,297 people presenting themselves for testing in the region on Tuesday.
‘We have had massive pressure in the pop-up clinics,’ Mr Hazzard said.
The pub has been linked to at least 34 new COVID-19 cases in NSW, with authorities suspecting an infectious traveller from Victoria sparked the flare-up.
Anyone who has recently visited the venue is being urged to self-isolate and get tested if symptoms arise.
