A popular NSW holiday destination is on high alert after a local man contracted Covid-19 from an infected Sydney traveller.
The popular NSW holiday destination of Port Stephens is on high alert after a local man contracted Covid-19 from an infected Sydney traveller visiting the area.
A Port Stephens local, a man in his 60s, is now in isolation after testing positive for the virus.
The source of the infection is a visitor from Sydney.
Anyone who visited the Salamander Bay Shopping Centre on July 15 has been urged to watch for coronavirus symptoms and get tested if any occur.
The Sydney case also visited the Windsor Castle Hotel in East Maitland between 6-8pm on July 13.
Anyone who visited the hotel during this time, and is experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, should seek testing immediately.
Dr David Durrheim, public health controller for Hunter New England Health's Covid-19 response, urged anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, cough or shortness of breath, is urged to get tested.
"Even those with mild symptoms such as fatigue, new muscle aches or pains, a change in taste or smell or a new runny nose are encouraged to arrange testing."
A Sydney Thai restaurant has emerged as a Covid-19 hotspot, after an explosion of cases made it the second biggest active cluster in the state.
NSW has recorded 16 new coronavirus cases - 11 linked to the Thai Rock restaurant in Stockland Mall Wetherill Park.
Yesterday 10 new cases were linked to the restaurant, including four people who dined at the restaurant and six who are contacts of people who dined there.
Two cases reported on Monday at Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral are also contacts of a diner at Thai Rock.
The cluster of cases associated with the restaurant now stands at 37.
The state's biggest Covid-19 cluster – from the Crossroads Hotel in Casula – now has 53 confirmed virus cases, after three more were linked to the pub overnight.
The total number of affected venues now stands at 47, with gyms, pubs, clubs, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and shopping centres all seeing new cases of coronavirus.
NSW Health is scrambling to get the rapidly spreading outbreaks under control, with the transmission in Sydney's southwest of particular concern.
NSW deputy chief health officer Jeremy McAnulty warned NSW residents to stay vigilant.
"It wouldn't take much for us to be in Melbourne's situation and we need everyone's assistance," he said over the weekend.
"Everyone has a role to play. Don't be complacent."
