NSW Health has identified a new venue of concern as part of ongoing investigations into the two locally acquired cases of COVID-19 reported earlier this week.
Anyone who attended the following venue at the time listed below is considered a
casual contact and should get tested immediately and isolate until a negative result is received. Continue to monitor for symptoms, and if they appear, get tested again.
A full list of venues of concern is available on the
NSW Government website. People are urged to check the NSW Health website regularly for updates.
Given the two recent cases of community transmission and updated health advice, COVID-19 restrictions have been temporarily tightened across Greater Sydney.
The following measures are in effect until 12.01am Monday 10 May for the Greater Sydney region (including Wollongong, Central Coast and Blue Mountains):
In relation to hospitality venues, the Public Health Order requires masks to be worn by customer- facing staff. Patrons do not have to wear a mask unless they are in a gaming area.It is also strongly recommended the community avoids mingling in large groups over the coming days, and is careful not to put our most vulnerable at risk.
NSW Health urges everyone in NSW with even the mildest symptoms – such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose – to come forward immediately for testing, then isolate until you receive a negative result.
There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic, visit
COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.
NSW Health is treating 113 COVID-19 cases, one of whom is in intensive care and being ventilated. Most cases (97 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
