10 new cases of COVID in NSW

4 weeks ago 21

There have been 10 new cases of coronavirus diagnosed in New South Wales up to 8pm on Sunday night.

Of those, six were returned travellers in hotel quarantine, and four were locally transmitted, linked to the Sydney CBD cluster.

Two of the new local cases are household contacts of a previously reported case, and the other two are close contacts of previously reported cases.

Chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant announced new health alerts for four venues in Sydney’s Inner West and North Shore.

Anyone who attended Woolworths Balmain on August 27 from 10am to 11am, or the Chemist Warehouse in Balmain on Friday August 28 from 2 to 2.30pm is considered a casual contact.

They should get tested if symptoms emerge and isolate until they return a negative result.

The same advice has been issued for anyone who went to Sushi Rio at Chatswood on August 27 from 5.45 to 7.30pm and Coles in St Ives on Friday August 28 between 1 and 2pm.

One case worked at the Reddam Early Learning Centre in Linfield for three days on August 23, 24 and 25, before becoming unwell on August 27.

The centre is closed for cleaning and contact tracing is underway.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said while the numbers were promising, NSW was not yet out of the woods and encouraged anyone with the mildest of symptoms to get tested.

“Every day is a battle and that's why it's really important to encourage people who have the mildest of symptoms to come forward,” she said.

“Normally August, September is the peak time for the flu, but because we're hand sanitising and keeping our distances those numbers haven't materialised - but that means if you do have a symptom you should assume it's COVID and not the flu.”
