Bondi McDonald’s among many other exposure sites in Sydney

Contact tracers are rushing to keep up with an ever-growing list of exposure sites as Sydney’s Bondi cluster grows.
Thousands of Sydney residents are on high alert with several alerts issued last night and this morning.
Already today another four venues were added as primary exposure sites, with anyone who visited the locations told to get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days.
They include:
  • Specsavers at Bondi Junction on Saturday June 26 between 3.50pm and 5pm
  • McDonald’s at Bondi Beach on Friday June 25 between 11.30am and 12pm
  • A Man and His Monkey cafe in Randwick on Sunday June 20 between 1pm and 2.30pm
  • Macquarie Bank on Shelley Street in Sydney on Monday June 21 between 8.30am to 6.30pm
NSW Health last night expanded the window of exposure at Rosebery coffee shop and listed a Marrickville chicken shop as a new high-risk location.
Earlier on Monday, a Domino’s pizza shop and a Macquarie Fields pub were among the latest locations visited by COVID-19 cases. Anyone else who was there at the relevant times will need to isolate for 14 days.
NSW Health also issued an alert on Monday night for multiple train and bus routes now linked to coronavirus cases.
NSW Health has cancelled its earlier warning related to the Sydney Airport T2 Domestic terminal food court between 5am and 10am on Thursday, June 24.
Further interviews “have determined the confirmed case of COVID-19 had not spent any time in the food court as initially reported”.
Anyone who was elsewhere in the terminal during those hours was considered a casual contact and should get tested and self-isolate until they get a negative result, NSW Health said.
The Bondi cluster now sits at 124 with more cases expected to be announced today.
There were nearly 59,000 people tested for the virus yesterday as people heed advice from authorities to get tested for even the mildest of symptoms.
A number of venues have been identified as causing particular concern as staff and patrons continue to test positive.
Dr Chant noted Lyfe Cafe in Bondi, Joh Bailey Hairdresser in Double Bay, Great Ocean Foods in Marrickville and The Royal Bondi as locations being monitored closely by authorities.
Dr Chant urged anyone who may have attended the venues during the times listed on the NSW Health website to get tested immediately.
A full list of exposure sites is available on the NSW Health website.
