Sydney: Health alert for venues in Surry Hills, Cabramatta, Marrickville

Last night NSW Health put out health warnings for three locations attended by confirmed COVID-19 cases: Harpoon and Hotel Harry in Surry Hills, Tan Viet in Cabramatta and Matinee Coffee in Marrickville.

These venues are in addition to a warning for Fitness First St Leonards, advised earlier yesterday.

A confirmed case who had been at the Apollo Restaurant in Potts Point on 25 July also attended Harpoon and Hotel Harry in Surry Hills on 26 July from 2.15pm to 11pm in the indoor dining areas.

"People who attended Harpoon and Hotel Harry for two hours in the above time period must self-isolate and get tested and stay isolated for a full 14 days, even if the test is negative. If symptoms develop, get tested again," NSW Health said.

The same advice has been given to people who attended Tan Viet in Cabramatta on 23 July, where a case relating to the funeral gatherings cluster attended, as well as patrons of Matinee Coffee in Marrickville between 8-9am on 26 July and 7-7:45am on 27 July.

Earlier it was revealed another infected person linked to the Potts Point cluster had been to Fitness First St Leonards on Monday July 27 between 9-10:30am.

The venue has been contacted by NSW Health and closed for a deep clean. 

The case also attended Woolworths, Crow's Nest on Monday July 27 between 10.30-11am.

"Customers and staff at the store during this time are considered casual contacts. They should continue to monitor for symptoms and get tested if they become unwell," NSW Health said.
