Anyone who visited The Apollo restaurant in Potts Point on 22 July must immediately self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19 now that new cases have been connected to the restaurant.
The public health warning was previously limited to restaurant attendees from 23 to 25 July, but with three cases now in total the timeframe has been expanded to a day earlier.
Two of those new cases visited The Apollo on 22 July and then the Cruising Yacht Club Australia (CYCA) in Rushcutters Bay on subsequent nights. The Yacht Club has been closed for deep cleaning.
The cases can be linked back to the Potts Point Thai Rock Restaurant according to NSW Health.
The third case is a staff member of The Apollo which sparked the initial closure of the restaurant.
Anyone who attended the CYCA on the following dates during these times is asked to monitor for symptoms and seek testing if they develop:
- Thursday 23 July 6pm-7.30pm
- Friday 24 July 3.30pm-5pm
- Sunday 26 July 4pm-5.30pm
"With the growing number of cases in the area, NSW Health is again asking all people who live in or have visited the Potts Point area in the past two weeks to get tested if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 at all, even the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat," says NSW Health.
A new pop-up clinic was established yesterday in Surry Hills for testing and will be open seven days a week.
Another new clinic will open form midday today in Rushcutters Bay Park.
