All passengers on a Virgin Airlines flight that landed in Sydney last month have been ordered to self-isolate as NSW's list of Covid exposure sites expands.
Dozens of new sites including Woolworths, Coles and Aldi supermarkets were announced on Sunday morning. Fifteen more sites added in the afternoon, including Virgin flight VA524.
The flight departed from the Gold Coast at 1.26pm and arrived in Sydney at 2.47pm on June 26 with a person infected with Covid onboard.
"Multiple Covid-19 transmissions have now occurred on this flight," NSW Health said.
All passengers and staff are considered to be close contacts and must immediately get tested and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result.
While Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the drop in cases was "encouraging", she warned the next few days are "critical" for the state, especially for the parts currently subjected to the lockdown.
