Thousands of customers are plunged into strict isolation as a Kmart, Woolworths, Big W and a food court at a major Sydney shopping centre are exposed to coronavirus

A popular Kmart, Woolworths and Big W at a busy shopping centre have been added to Sydney’s expanding list of exposure sites. 

A series of stores at the Westfield Eastgardens shopping centre have been marked as exposure sites on June 25 between 12pm and 2:25pm.

A Woolworths in Double Bay was also exposed to Covid-19 on June 26 from 7:00pm to 8:15pm, while a positive case was linked to a Super IGA in Blaxland on June 2 from 6am to 4pm. 

An infected shopper visited the Westfield Eastgardens Woolworths from 12pm to 12:30pm, Big W from 12:30pm to 12:50pm and Kmart from 12:55 to 1:15pm.

The case then visited The Reject Shop in the same centre from 1:15pm to 1:30pm, the food court on Level 2 from 1:30pm to 2:15pm and the Level 3 Children’s Play Area near Woolworths from 2:00pm to 2:25pm. 

Anyone who attended these venues is considered a casual contact and must immediately get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result. 

The same advice applies to anyone who visited a popular Oporto at Bondi Beach on June 25 from 10:45pm to 10:55pm. 

Pattison’s Patisserie in the Bondi Junction Westfield was also exposed to the virus on June 21 from 2:00pm to 2:30pm, as well as 7-Eleven in Kensington on June 22 from 12:50pm to 1:10pm.
