Woolworths, Coles and Aldi have joined a growing list of Covid exposure sites in NSW as the state braces for more new cases. 

The state reported a total of three new cases on Saturday linked to the Bondi Junction Westfield after "fleeting contact" with a limousine driver believed to be at the centre of the outbreak.

One of the cases, a man in his 50s, was announced on Friday but added to Saturday's total and a man in his 30s announced yesterday will be added to today's total.
