NSW Health is investigating new cases of COVID-19 in relation to City Tattersalls Fitness Centre on Pitt Street.

These cases attended the centre during the past few days, while unknowingly infectious and after being exposed to infections in the gym.

Anyone who attended this venue on the following dates and times are considered to be close contacts and must immediately get tested for COVID-19, and self-isolate for 14 days since their last visit.

  • Wednesday 19 August between 8am - 2pm
  • Friday 21 August between 8am - 2pm, including:
    • Aqua Aerobics from 10am-10:45am
    • Stretch Class from 11am – 11:50am
    • Pump Class from 12:15pm - 1pm
  • Sunday 23 August between 8am - 2pm
  • Monday 24 August between 8am - 2pm
  • Tuesday 25 August between 8am - 2pm

Members who attended the gym on the above dates but outside those times should be on the alert for symptoms and get tested and self-isolate if symptoms do develop.

A previously reported case attended one of the gaming areas of City Tattersalls on 24 August. Others who were in the gaming areas on this day must monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if even the mildest symptoms develop.

NSW Health is investigating whether the CBD cluster originated in the City Tattersalls Club and then spread to workplaces in the city and to households across Sydney and the Central Coast. To assist in identifying undiagnosed earlier COVID cases, NSW Health is asking anyone who attended the Club between 4 August 2020 – 18 August 2020 to get tested for COVID-19 and isolate until a negative test result is received.

A full list of COVID-19 testing clinics is available or people can visit their GP.
