Urgent warning to Westfield customers after Sydney shopper tests positive for coronavirus

  • Shopper who attended Westfield Mount Druitt in Sydney’s west tests positive
  • Anyone at the centre 1.30-3.30pm on Saturday urged to watch for symptoms

Shoppers who attended a popular Westfield in western Sydney on Saturday have been warned to be alert for coronavirus symptoms after a shopper tested positive. 

Westfield Mount Druitt was added to the NSW Health list of locations on Monday after a shopper who was at the shopping centre between 1.30pm and 3.30pm on Saturday returned a positive result.

Any other shoppers who were at the centre between those times on Saturday (July 18) are urged to watch for symptoms and get tested immediately and self-isolate if they develop.

A Sydneysider who visited Westfield Mt Druitt on Saturday afternoon has since tested positive

A restaurant and a pub in Paddington have also had affected patrons at their premises.

Anyone who dined at Oxford Street restaurant Love Supreme on July 14 from 5.30pm to 9pm is urged to monitor for symptoms.

The same warning applies to patrons who attended historic The Village Inn on Glenmore Road on July 11 from 6.30pm to 10pm. 

Symptoms include fever, cough, sore/scratchy throat, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell.

The shopping centre and Paddington businesses are among 20 locations on NSW Health’s ‘monitor for symptoms’ list.

It comes as NSW reported 20 new cases on Monday, all from a known source.

Sutherland Local Court in Sydney’s south was also closed for forensic cleaning on Monday after an individual who attended last Wednesday tested positive.

Further testing is underway, a Department of Communities and Justice spokesperson confirmed.

‘The department will continue to work closely with NSW Health and carry out all necessary measures to protect the safety of our staff, court users and the community.’
