A Paddington pub has today joined a long list of venues, shops, gyms and public transport routes across Sydney that have been linked to positive COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

At a press conference today, Wednesday, September 2, Dr Kerry Chant said that Sydneysiders who visited the downstairs area of the Four in Hand Pub on Sutherland Street for more that two hours between 6.30–10pm on Wednesday, August 26, should immediately get tested and self-isolate for 14 days.

If you visited the pub between those times, but dined only in the upstairs area or for less than two hours, you should monitor for symptoms and get tested if you develop even a sniffle.

The announcement comes as the state records 17 new cases in the 24 hours up to 8pm on Tuesday, September 1, with eight of those linked to the CBD cluster, which now includes a total of 49 cases.

Seventeen new cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, and one previous case was excluded...

Dr Chant also announced that Sydneysiders who visited Metro Fuel Greystanes, Big Bun in Merrylands, Carslaw Building University of Sydney Camperdown toilets and Stockland Merrylands at various times across Thursday, August 27 and Friday, August 28 should also monitor for symptoms.

The NSW Health continues to update its long list of venues and public transport routes associated with positive COVID-19 cases over at its website.

With cases confirmed across a number of suburbs, NSW Health is asking anyone who lives in or has visited the following areas in the past 14 days to get tested if they have any symptoms: Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Ku-ring-gai, Liverpool, Mt Druitt, Parramatta, Randwick, Sutherland, Sydney, Waverley, Willoughby and Woollahra.

As has been the advice for months now, those with symptoms — coughs, fever, sore or scratchy throat, shortness of breath or loss of smell or taste — are encouraged to get tested and self-isolate while awaiting results. You can find out closest testing clinic over here.
