Two workplaces in southwest Sydney are feared to be at the centre of a new superspreader event.
D&M Excavations and Hanson Concrete, both on Bellfrog Street in Greenacre, were listed as COVID-19 exposure sites by NSW Health late on Wednesday night.

Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant said the former had now been associated with nine cases while the former had four.
She issued a plea for anyone who had been there at the same time as any of the infectious workers to come forward for testing.
“Anyone who was on the site from the 1st July to the 13th July is considered a close contact, must get tested and isolate since the last date of attendance.
“The four cases all worked at the site across these dates and we are concerned that we need people to respond to those urgent requests.
“Obviously, we are following up with the cooperation of those workplaces, but we also are alerting the community.”
There were 65 new cases of COVID-19 reported by NSW Health on Thursday morning.
Of those, 28 had been active in the community, which Premier Gladys Berejiklian lamented was too high.
“Based on the fact that we had 28 people infectious in the community in the last 24 hours, I am predicting that we will have higher case numbers tomorrow,” she foreshadowed.
