A bar in Inner West in Sydney has been identified by health authorities as a potential hotspot for community transmission of the coronavirus.
The Rose of Australia Hotel in Erskineville has been added to the rapidly growing list of places prone to COVID-19.
She said that a shepherd visited the bar on the evening of December 15 and then tested positive for the virus.
However, on Monday, chief health official Kerry Chant said a second person associated with the place tested positive.
The infection was highlighted by inviting public leaders to take the test.
“This gives more insight that everyone in this place is, in fact, in close contact,” she said.
“If you are there on the evening of December 15 between 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, you are in close contact and need to get tested immediately and self-isolate.
This self-isolation must be done for a full 14 days, regardless of the test result.
New South Wales reported 15 new cases of coronavirus on Monday from more than 38,000 tests.
All of these are associated with the Avalon group, bringing the total to 83 cases.
Restrictions on gatherings across Greater Sydney will remain in effect until Wednesday when they will be re-evaluated.
