NSW Health has issued an alert for passengers who have travelled on a number of train services throughout Sydney after a person with Covid-19 travelled on the lines.
The state recorded just two new locally acquired cases of coronavirus on Saturday, including a nurse who tested positive after working at St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney while infectious.
NSW Health's Dr Michael Douglas said the nurse is believed to have acquired coronavirus outside the hospital and the second local case was also linked to the nurse.
The casual nurse worked a single evening shift on Wednesday while infectious, NSW Health said.
NSW Health also warned a positive coronavirus case used trains between Parramatta and Eastwood earlier this week, including five trains on Wednesday.
Anyone who travelled on the trains is considered a “casual contact” and must monitor symptoms, the health department said.
They also have to remain in isolation until a negative test result is returned.
