Three pubs in Sydney have been have been added to NSW Health’s list of venues exposed to Covid-19.
On Monday evening, NSW Health announced that authorities are investigating the source of infection for a recently confirmed Covid case.
NSW Health listed three venues in Sydney’s west, urging anyone who attended the venues at the specific times to get tested immediately and self-isolate until they receive a negative result.
“If symptoms appear, please isolate and get tested again,” NSW Health said.
The venues include three pubs, the Village Tavern and the Auburn Hotel, both in Auburn, and the Berala Hotel in Berala.
The Village Tavern on the corner of Queen Street and Harrow Road has multiple dates and times the public needs to be aware of.
The Village Tavern: Monday, December 28, 6pm until Tuesday 29 December at 4am
The Village Tavern: Thursday, January 7, 6pm until Friday January 8 at 4am
The Village Tavern: Wednesday, January 13 at 6pm until Wednesday January 14 at 4am
The Berala Hotel: Wednesday, December 30, 6pm until close
The Auburn Hotel: Tuesday, January 12, 6pm until close
NSW Health also advises anyone who has been to Auburn Central shopping centre or the Auburn shops along Queen Street and South Parade at any time since 1 January 2021, to get tested and self-isolate until receiving a negative result if they have had any symptoms.
NSW recorded zero new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm on Sunday, as well as eight cases in hotel quarantine.
However, the tally came from fewer than 9000 tests, prompting NSW Health's Dr Jeremy McAnulty to plead for an uptick in testing numbers.
Ms Berejiklian has previously flagged the possibility of easing restrictions on Greater Sydney this week but only if testing rates are sufficiently high.
"The drop in daily testing numbers is of concern and NSW Health renews its calls for people to get tested if they are experiencing even the mildest of symptoms," Dr McAnulty said in a statement on Monday.
"The best thing we can do for our friends and family is to get tested."
