Must isolate after visiting

TWO shops in Merrylands have been included in a list of venues where visitors have been urged to get tested for Covid-19 after an outbreak in the eastern suburbs.

There are now nine confirmed cases of Covid-19 with those infected visiting several locations across Sydney, prompting an alert from NSW Health.
Anyone who attended Big W at Stockland Merrylands on Monday, June 14, 1.50-2.45pm and Oporto (food court) at the centre on the same day, 2.40-3pm, is listed as a close contact and should get tested and self-isolate until getting a negative result.
With face masks again mandatory on public transport, Premier Gladys Berejiklian has not ruled out further restrictions but is urging everyone to get tested to help with contact tracing and to contain the virus.
There was also another detection at the sewage pumping station which covers suburbs including Granville, South Granville, Merrylands, Merrylands West, Guildford West, Sydney Olympic Park, Newington, Holroyd, Clyde, Auburn, Old Guildford, Guildford, Silverwater and Rosehill.
NSW Health says people who have recently recovered from Covid-19 may continue to shed virus fragments into the wastewater system for several weeks after they are no longer infectious.
However, it has urged everyone in these areas to be especially vigilant for any cold like symptoms and if they appear, immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.
“People who do not have symptoms and have not been at the specific exposure venues at the listed times do not need to isolate, however everyone is strongly urged to avoid gatherings and minimise their movements, such as not attending the cinemas or trips to the ski fields,” a spokesperson said.
“If you can work from home, please do so.”
People are also being urged to wear masks in indoor settings.
