An urgent warning has been issued to diners at an inner Sydney restaurant as health authorities struggle to contain NSW’s largest coronavirus cluster.
Anyone who attended Thai Rock restaurant in Potts Point between July 15 and July 25 for at least two hours is being told to self isolate for 14 days and to get tested immediately.
Anyone at the restaurant for under two house is being told to watch for symptoms and isolate and get tested if they develop.
While the restaurant has the same owners as the Thai Rock in Wetherill Park, which is linked to 67 COVID-19 cases, NSW Health say they have found no link between the two venues.
A staff member at Thai Rock Potts Point has now tested positive, with investigations into its source ongoing.
The warning from NSW Health comes after another confirmed case attended the restaurant on July 17.
Authorities are also urging anyone who attended AN Restaurant in Bankstown on July 23 from 9am to 11am and Tan Viet Noodle House in Cabramatta on July 22 from 1pm to 2pm to monitor for symptoms after the restaurants were exposed to the virus.
Georges River Grammar School in Georges Hall has also been temporarily closed for cleaning after a child who attended the school tested positive. The child is linked with the funeral and church service clusters in southwestern Sydney.
There are also fears a woman who attended five seperate church services in five different locations between July 16 and 19 could be a virus super spreader. Anyone who attended any of the services in Sydney’s west is being told to isolate.
NSW has now recorded 3479 cases – up 249 in the past 21 days.
Residents have been urged to avoid all non-essential travel and gatherings.
"Of particular concern is transmission in venues such as hotels and restaurants, the gym and social gatherings," the health department said in a statement.
"Consider using a mask in situations where you are unable to social distance, particularly indoors."
