·3-min read

More Covid exposure sites have been named by NSW Health, including a Bunnings, Woolworths and Coles Express.

The news comes after the state recorded 18 new infections on Monday and premier Gladys Berejiklian warned numbers may still “go up considerably”. It follows 30 cases announced on Sunday.

Some 130 people have now picked up the virus locally since June 16, when the case of an unvaccinated limousine driver was reported at Bondi in Sydney's east.

Of the 18 cases recorded in the 24 hours to 8pm on Sunday, 15 are directly linked to the Bondi cluster.

What to do if isolating

Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant on Monday reminded people in isolation they should be cocooned away from others even in their home, wearing a mask while around others and using a separate bathroom if possible.

"We all have a role to play in adhering to the health advice. So if you are a close contact, don't think 'I am vaccinated' or 'I was really only there for a few minutes'. Please follow the health advice and stay in for the 14 days," she said.

Monday marks the second full day of a two-week hard lockdown for the Greater Sydney, Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellharbour regions.
