Sydney authorities have issued new alerts for COVID-19 virus. Multiple shops and a sports club in the city have been added to the list where virus has possibly spread. Sydney Northern Beaches and West areas are currently on alert for coronavirus exposure.

According to the reports, the NSW health officials have urged people who have visited the listed venues, to take the COVID-19 test immediately. They will have to go into self-isolation for 14 days even if they test negative for the coronavirus. As the visitors are now considered close contacts, they are asked to follow NSW health officials' directions. 

The case is linked to Blacktown Workers Sports Club's Grange restaurant. Those who dined at the restaurant are required to get tested on a priority basis. However, for people who visited the club but did not eat at the restaurant have been asked to monitor symptoms if any.

Fresh list of locations added to NSW list

The sports club has announced that it has temporarily closed and will re-open as per the authorities' instructions. The website states that the officials have notified them of two Covid-19 cases attending the 'Grange All You Can Eat Restaurant' on 10th and 3rd January. The website has also provided the details of clinics conducting COVID-19 testing in the Blacktown area. The club is assisting authorities with the information they require.

The club states that they have undertaken all the visitors' check-in through Service NSW QR Code procedures. Therefore, it will be easier for the NSW health contact-tracers to locate the visitors and guide them through this situation. The Blacktown Workers Sports Club staff will also self-isolate and get the test done as required.

Meanwhile, several supermarkets such as Coles, Woolworths, Aldi, and a sports store Rebel are also on the list of COVID-19 virus spread. Those who visited these shops from December 31 to January 8 at various timings have been asked to get themselves tested for COVID-19 and look out for any symptoms.

Those attending Warriewood Square stores are considered casual contacts and should check for symptoms and get tested immediately. They are asked to self-isolate until they receive negative test results.
