A list of potential coronavirus sites in NSW is continuing to grow with more Aldi, Woolworths and Coles stores added on Wednesday night.

NSW reported 27 new cases of coronavirus yesterday, prompting an extension of a two-week lockdown to three weeks.

With several of those cases in the community while infectious, the health department has identified more areas of concern for potential transmission.

Anyone who visited Aldi at Canterbury last Monday between 12-1.50pm is considered a close contact and is being asked to self-isolate immediately and get tested for Covid-19.

They have to stay self-isolated regardless of their test results.

Costco at Casula, Coles at Maroubra, Woolworths at Bonnyrigg and Woolworths at Revesby have all been identified as casual contact sites. 

Anyone who visited these at the times listed has to self-isolate, get tested and remain isolated until a negative test result is received.

Premier warns Covid cases will spike

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian warned on Wednesday that case numbers will spike in the coming days due to the highly infectious Delta strain of the virus spreading rapidly in the local government areas of Fairfield, Liverpool and Canterbury-Bankstown.

If the situation further deteriorates in those communities, harsher localised restrictions could be imposed, she warned.

While current restrictions permit exercising in groups of 10 and care visits, the premier implored people in those council areas to avoid such activities.

"Most of us have stocked up on groceries, probably have more things than we need, so please avoid leaving the house, avoid going to indoor areas, avoid any activity unless absolutely necessary," Ms Berejiklian said on Wednesday.
