Woolworths in Sydney's eastern suburbs added to list of Covid-19 exposure sites

A Woolworths in Sydney's eastern suburbs has been added to the list of Covid-19 exposure sites as New South Wales records another day of no new locally acquired cases.

Those who visited the supermarket in Double Bay on Monday May 3 between 10.45am-11am have been urged to get tested and isolate immediately.

The same instructions have been given to anybody who visited the store on May 4 between 4.05pm - 4.15pm.

NSW Health said casual contacts needed to isolate until they received a negative test and should continue to get swabbed if symptoms appear. 

Health authorities said there were six new infections recorded on Saturday but these were all in hotel quarantine.

More than 22,000 people got tested within the past 24 hours after it was revealed a man and his wife from Woollahra had tested positive to the virus. 

The man in his 50s tested positive for Covid on Wednesday and then his wife was diagnosed with the virus on Thursday.  

But contact tracers are still scrambling to find a 'missing link' in the infection chain.

NSW Health have determined through genomic testing the man contracted the virus from a returned traveller from the U.S. who was infected with an Indian variant.  

A raft of Covid restrictions were re-introduced for three days in Greater Sydney after the positive cases, with the return of compulsory masks and visitors in homes limited to 20 people.

A furniture store in Balgowlah called Smith Made and Rug Cleaning Repairs Hand Rug Wash in Brookvale pose a potential link to new infections. 

More to come.
