Sydney’s COVID-19 exposure sites expand to include Bunnings, Woolworths and Australia Post

Dozens of more venues across Sydney have been listed as COVID-19 exposure sites just hours after the number of locally acquired cases in New South Wales rose by double digits.

The state recorded 112 new local COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm on Sunday, at least 46 of which were out in the community for part or all of their infectious period.

“Where the numbers are, it is not likely – in fact, almost impossible – for us to get out of lockdown on Friday,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters.

Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said she was “in two minds” about whether Monday’s case numbers marked a peak in the outbreak.

“If I can find all the cases out there today through really, really high testing, that is actually a win,” Dr Chant said.

“If we are getting to people really early when they are just turning infectious then they have probably had that chance of not infecting it further and if we can contain the family unit we can stop the spread.”

NSW Health expanded the list of exposure sites that afternoon after contact tracers confirmed the venues had been visited by positive cases.
