NSW Health has advised that any Sydneysiders who visited a number of eateries and shops in the inner city and inner west should monitor their health and immediately get tested if they present any symptoms, with the state's latest COVID-19 case linked to seven locations.

The government body sent out an update on Thursday, August 6, detailing the places linked to one of the state's 12 newly confirmed cases. The new case is a man in his 20s who visited a range of shops and eateries between Friday, July 31 and Sunday, August 2.

In Glebe, those who visited Jambo Jambo African restaurant between 7–8.30pm on July 31 are being told to isolate for a full 14 days and get tested, regardless of symptoms.

The confirmed case also visited Redfern's The Eveleigh Hotel from 8.30–10pm on July 31; Enmore's Warren View Hotel from 4–4.20pm, Mary's in Macquarie Place from 6.45–7.15pm, Cubby's Kitchen in the CBD from 7.35–9.30pm and Burrow Bar from 9.35–11.15pm, all on August 1; and Woolworths at Marrickville Metro from 7–7.20pm on August 2. NSW Health is advising those who visited these venues at the same times to monitor for symptoms and to self-isolate and get tested if they develop even a sniffle.

Another newly confirmed case in Newcastle also visited a range of venues — including Bennett Hotel, Greenroof Bar and Restaurant, Sushi Revolution and Wests New Lambton — between July 31–August 2 and NSW Health is urging anyone who attended the venues at specified times to isolate for a full 14 days and get tested, regardless of symptoms.

NSW Health is continuing to update its list of venues associated with positive cases, and its advice on whether you should self-isolate immediately or monitor for symptoms.

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, Cambelltown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Liverpool, Parramatta, Potts Point, Carnes Hill shops, Prestons, Bonnyrigg, Wetherill Park, Mt Pritchard, Cabramatta and Perisher.

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.
