Sydney childcare centre closes after positive case

A Sydney childcare centre has confirmed a positive case of COVID-19 as the city braces for a possible surge in the number of virus cases today.
The child attended Little Zaks Academy in Narellan Vale in Sydney’s south west on Monday.
“It has come to our attention from the NSW Health Department and Liverpool Health that we have had a confirmed Covid-19 case from one of our children,” a message from the centre to the parents, seen by 9News, reads.
The centre has been closed and anyone who attended on Tuesday is considered a close contact and must get tested and self-isolate for 14 days.
The new case has sparked an influx of people trying to get tested, with a site in Narellan at full capacity.
NSW Police has urged people to avoid the area and consider alternative testing sites, like Campbelltown or Camden Hospital.
Meanwhile, residents in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs are also heeding the call to get tested as authorities work to identify the source of a mystery Covid-19 case in a Year 3 student at Charles Waverley Catholic School.
Residents are facing hours-long wait times for coronavirus tests as queues at Bondi clinics grow.
The Bondi cluster balloon to 21 cases yesterday, with health authorities on edge as they try to work out how the primary school student contracted the virus.
