Sydneysiders have been warned after a taxi driver with coronavirus worked for nine days while potentially infectious.
The revelation comes as two new infections were confirmed in NSW on Sunday. One case was detected in an overseas traveller in hotel quarantine while the other was believed to be locally acquired at Liverpool Hospital.
The state also recorded its first COVID-19 death in more than a month after a man in his 70s linked to the Sydney CBD cluster died.
Health officials are also warning anyone who may have taken a taxi in Western and South-Western Sydney from September 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms and get tested if needed.
NSW Health issued the statement in particularly to residents in Moorebank, Bankstown, Chipping Norton, Liverpool, Lidcombe, Warwick Farm and Milperra.
The taxi driver had installed the COVIDSafe App so a team is tracing any potential contacts.
Anyone who has visited these locations for at least one hour are also urged to immediately get tested and isolate:
