Essential workers who reside in the heart of Sydney’s developing COVID cluster will have to be tested every three days if they want to work around the city.

Health orders have been amended to include mandatory testing for anyone who lives in the Fairfield local government area but works outside it.

Anyone who lives in a lockdown area but works in the regions is being asked to get tested weekly.

Asymptomatic workers will have to undergo “surveillance testing” and won’t have to isolate while waiting for results.

Those with symptoms shouldn’t be leaving the home regardless of working status, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.

“Whilst the premier has clearly indicated our focus is on Fairfield Local Government area, it is critical that we do not become complacent across the rest of Greater Sydney,” Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant said.

“The risk exists everywhere, and every time someone leaves your house, you have to assume that the person that you may be encountering at the shopping centre has got COVID – so act accordingly.”

The government, however, stopped short of defining what exactly an essential worker is.

“I think, in terms of essential work, the employer and the employee would know whether that particular worker was essential to the particular circumstances,” Health Minister Brad Hazzard said.

“So it will be left to the worker and to the employer but my message also to the employers particularly is if you don’t need to have someone come from an area that is suspect and obviously has major COVID concerns presently, then perhaps it might be an idea to make arrangements for a worker from another area.”

There were 89 new cases of COVID-19 reported on Tuesday.

Of those, 55 were isolating throughout their infectious period, a promising shift from 112 new cases on Monday.

However, Berejiklian said “one day is not a trend” and warned that lockdown would likely still be extended.
