NSW Health is urging people who attended classes at a popular gym in south-west Sydney to isolate immediately, as the state recorded four new locally acquired Covid cases.

Members at F45 on Camden Valley Way in Leppington that attended classes on multiple days are considered to be a close contact of one of the new cases confirmed on Thursday.

Anyone who was at the F45 gym at those times must get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result, NSW Health said in a statement.

The classes in question are:

  • Thursday 15 October, 5.15pm – 6pm

  • Saturday 17 October, 8.10am – 9.10am

  • Sunday 18 October, 8.55am – 9.40am

  • Monday 19 October, 5.50am – 6.35am

  • Tuesday 20 October, 5.50am – 6.35am

  • Wednesday 21 October, 5.15pm – 6pm

  • Thursday 22 October, 6.45am – 7.30am

  • Friday 23 October, 9.35am – 10.20am

  • Saturday 24 October, 7.10am – 8.10am

  • Sunday 25 October, 8.55am – 9.40am

  • Monday 26 October, 5.50am – 6.35am

  • Tuesday 27 October, 6.45am – 7.30am

  • Wednesday 28 October, 5.50am – 6.35am

“Anyone who attended a class that was scheduled to begin five minutes before or five minutes after one of the classes listed above, or a class immediately before or after the sessions, is considered a casual contact,” NSW Health said.

Anyone who was at Ali Baba Charcoal Chicken on Civic Road, in Auburn on Sunday 18 October between 4pm and 5pm is also considered a casual contact.

Unlike close contacts, casual contacts are asked to monitor their symptoms and get tested immediately if any develop.

Once casual contacts are tested, they must remain in isolation until they receive a negative result.

In a statement, NSW Health spoke of how the dip in testing numbers was of concern.

“NSW Health is appealing to the community to come forward for testing right away if you have even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could be COVID-19,” the statement said.

There were five new Covid cases confirmed by NSW health authorities on Thursday, four were locally acquired, one was in hotel quarantine.

It is the highest number of new locally acquired Covid-19 cases in 12 days.
