“So particularly in that community, be very vigilant, come forward for testing if you have even the mildest of symptoms.”
The infections of the man who attended Mount Druitt’s emergency department on Saturday, and his household contact, are also under investigation.
“Close contacts have been identified, isolated and tested,” Dr McAnulty said.
Several new exposure sites were added to the NSW Health website last night, linked to the new cases.
Anyone who attended the Blacktown Workers Sports Club’s Grange Buffet for more than one hour on Sunday January 10, between 12pm and 1.16pm, or for more than one hour on Sunday, January 3, between 11.40am and 1.30pm, is considered a close contact. They must immediately get tested and isolate for 14 days, regardless of whether a negative result is received.
The new Berala case is a woman who attended the local BWS on December 29. She was in isolation when she developed her infection.
“It reflects the importance of doing the right thing, staying in isolation,” Dr McAnulty said.
