Six new cases for NSW

NSW has recorded six new cases of COVID-19 since yesterday, bringing the total number of cases in the state to 3,968.

Of the six new cases, one is a returned overseas traveller in hotel quarantine while the remaining five are locally acquired and linked to a known case or cluster, NSW Health said.

Four of the new cases are close contacts of previous cases associated with Concord Hospital.

“Another of the new cases is a household contact of a previously reported case linked to the St Paul’s Catholic College Greystanes cluster,” NSW Health said.

“One of the new cases is a student of Blue Mountains Grammar School. Anyone already identified as a close contact is being informed they must immediately get tested and isolate for 14 days.”

It said the school was currently undergoing a deep clean.

NSW Health also announced that a previously reported case had attended Katoomba Aquatic Centre on Friday 4 September from 11.30am-1.30pm.

“Anyone who was at the venue at this time is advised to monitor for symptoms and immediately self-isolate and get tested if symptoms develop, however mild, and remain isolated until a negative result is received,” it said.

“NSW Health is alerting anyone who attended KFC at 2A Bunting St Emerton on Monday 7 September between 12.00pm to 9:30pm to be alert for symptoms and immediately get tested if any develop, and stay isolated until a negative test result is received. Anyone already identified as a close contact is being informed they must isolate for 14 days, get tested and stay isolated even if a negative test result is received within this period.”

“Anyone who travelled on the following bus routes must be alert for symptoms and immediately get tested if any develop, and stay isolated until a negative test result is received – 379 Bronte Beach – Bondi Junction station, 7 September 2020, 11.08am-11.24am; and 316 Avoca St Randwick – Bondi Junction station, 8 September 2020, (not 7 September as previously reported​) 10.44am-11.05am.”

As announced yesterday, one previously reported case – a staff member of Concord Hospital – has been excluded after further testing and this has beens reflected in today’s case total.

NSW Health is treating 84 COVID-19 cases, including six in intensive care, four of whom are being ventilated.
