A reported case of COVID-19 has hit a shopping centre in the south of Sydney.
The Deputy Director at the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Dr Vicky Sheppeard reported a individual working while contagious at Westfield Hurstville.
Sheppeard said on 22 and 23 July the employee had been working at ProfessioNAIL.
“This person is associated with the funeral cluster from southwest Sydney,” she said in a statement.
Health officials said the store had performed a deep clean, and for 14 days all close contacts from the reported case were identified and directed to self-isolation.
“There is no broader risk at Westfield Hurstville,” she said.
Shoppers who visited Westfield Mount Druitt between 1.30pm and 3.30pm on July 18 were placed on alert earlier this month after an infectious shopper was in attendance.
The case was later linked to the Wetherill Park Thai Rock restaurant.
In Sydney ‘s east, two more pop-up COVID-19 testing clinics were established as NSW health authorities seek to track another possible hotspot for infection.
A clinic opened in Surry Hills on Tuesday and another will open in Rushcutters Bay Park from noon on Wednesday, down the road from the high-density Potts Point where three people tested positive earlier this week.
“The two cases dined at both the Thai Rock Potts Point restaurant and The Apollo restaurant and NSW Health now believes this links the two outbreaks,” authorities said.
“With the growing number of cases in the area, NSW Health is again asking all people who live in or have visited the Potts Point area in the past two weeks to get tested if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 at all.”
