Here Are All of Sydney's COVID-19 Exposure Sites Going Into the Mother's Day Weekend
Twenty-three locations have been identified so far — here's the list.
In the Greater Sydney region, the past few days have seen health alerts issued, mask mandates reinstated and restrictions reimplemented, all in response to the city's two recent locally acquired COVID-19 cases. A growing number of venues have also been identified as COVID-19 exposure sites this week — with folks who visited them required to take a range of actions, usually involving getting tested and self-isolating.
Eight places were initially highlighted on Wednesday, with others added since. Thankfully, no new cases were identified overnight — in the 24 hours up until 8pm on Thursday, May 6, as reported by NSW Health today — but the list of spots to note includes venues everywhere from the CBD, Paddington and Haymarket to Bondi Beach and Bondi Junction. In terms of dates, it also covers visits between Tuesday, April 27–Tuesday, May 4.
A few big ones to note from the now 23-location rundown: Fratelli Fresh in Westfield Sydney from 1.15–2.15pm on Tuesday, April 27, Barbetta from 1.30–2.30pm on Friday, April 30, District Brasserie between 11am–12pm the same day, and Woolworths Double Bay from 4.05–4.15pm on Tuesday, May 4.
