New Sydney COVID health alerts

​NSW Health has this evening issued a further health alert for locations in Western Sydney which have possibly been exposed to newly confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Anyone who attended the following venues is considered a close contact and must get tested immediately and isolate for a full 14 days from exposure regardless of the result:

  • Al-Jabr – A Different Class of Mathematics, 37 Queen St, Auburn on Thursday 8 October 2020, between 4:30pm – 8:45 pm and Sunday 11 October 2020, between 10 am – 4:30 pm.
  • ACE Tutoring, 25 George St, Parramatta on Saturday 10 October 2020 between 9:30 am – 1:20 pm.

“Anyone who attended the following venue is considered a casual contact and must monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if they develop,” said NSW Health.

After testing, they must remain in isolation until a negative test result is received:

  • Westfield Mount Druitt, Cnr Carlisle Ave & Luxford Rd, Mount Druitt on Monday 12 October 2020, between 11:30 am – 1 pm.

Testing numbers have dropped recently, which NSW Health said is a major concern.

NSW Health is appealing to the community to come forward for testing right away if you have even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could be COVID-19.

There are over 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic visit https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/how-to-protect-yourself-and-others/clinics or contact your GP.
