Several new venues have been added to NSW Health’s growing list of places visited by confirmed coronavirus cases.

On Sunday, NSW confirmed 30 new Covid-19 cases, 28 of which were linked to the cluster on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, which is currently under lockdown.

The other two cases are individuals who reside in the Northern Beaches area, but their cases are under investigation.

The new venues in NSW Health’s latest public health alert extends beyond the Northern Beaches to the Lower North Shore as well as the southern and eastern suburbs.
