·3-min read

Shoppers who visited two Sydney supermarkets on one of the busiest days of the year are being warned to monitor themselves for Covid-19 symptoms.

NSW Health updated the list of venues visited by confirmed virus cases overnight, which included trips to Aldi and Woolworths in Belrose, in Sydney’s northeast, on Christmas Eve.

Anyone who was in the supermarkets between 12pm and 1pm on December 24 is being asked to monitor closely for symptoms and get tested immediately if any occur.

It comes as NSW reports three new locally acquired cases on Sunday, one linked to the Avalon cluster and two linked to Berala.
