Churchgoers in isolation after COVID-19 case attended Sydney service

NSW Health has issued a public health warning for visitors of a church service at Life in the Spirit Ministry in Prestons after a confirmed COVID-19 case attended a service.

Those who were at the Preston church on 30 August from 12.30pm to 2.30pm are considered close contacts and must be tested for COVID-19 and self-isolate for 14 days until midnight on 13 September.

The warning comes as 12 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed today in New South Wales, including three returned travellers in hotel quarantine.

Of the 12, three are locally acquired, including two in a South Western Sydney family and a case in Parkes, with no source of infection identified at this point.

One is linked to a previously reported case in South Eastern Sydney whose source is under investigation, and the remaining five are linked to known cases or clusters.

Among today's new cases is a contact of a previously reported case in a student at St Pauls Catholic College Greystanes and a new case in Girraween Public School, bringing the total linked to the schools to 12.

In addition to the public health warning for Life in the Spirit Ministry, NSW Health has asked anyone who attended the following venues to get tested as they are considered casual contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases:

  • Westfield Chatswood on Thursday, 27 August from 1pm-1.50pm
  • Gram Café and Pancakes, Chatswood Station on Thursday, 27 August from 11.10am-12.15pm
