“Anyone who was inside the restaurant for an hour or more during this time is considered a close contact and must immediately get tested, isolate for 14 days and stay isolated for the entire period, even if a negative test result is received,” NSW Health said.

“Anyone who dined outside the restaurant or was there for less than one hour is considered a casual contact and must monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if they develop. After testing, they must remain in isolation until a negative test result is received.”

More to come.
