NSW Health is alerting the community after a newly confirmed case of COVID-19 - a man in his 20s from south-west Sydney who is a close contact of a previously reported case associated with the Mounties cluster - attended three venues while infectious.

He attended several venues while infectious and people at these venues are considered casual contacts and urged to be alert for symptoms, and if any develop to get tested and self-isolate immediately.

These venues are:

  • Penrith Plaza: August 1 from 10.30am to 12.00pm
  • Master Hot Pot, Canley Vale: August 1 from 1pm to 2pm
  • BBQ City Buffet, Bankstown : August 1 from 7pm to 8.30pm

NSW Health has also added an additional day of exposure risk for patrons of Mounties after a previously reported case reported attending the venue on Sunday, July 26 from 4pm to 7pm. The club, which voluntarily decided to close as a precautionary measure and will reopen this week in staggered stages, has now 15 reported cases associated with the 50 cases from the funeral events in Bankstown and surrounding suburbs.

The total range of exposures for Mounties is:

  • 12:01am to 2:30am Monday 20 July.
  • 12:15pm to 5:30pm on Tuesday 21 July.
  • 8.00pm to midnight on Tuesday 21 July.
  • Midnight to 12:30am on Wednesday 22 July.
  • 7.00pm to midnight on Wednesday 22 July.
  • Midnight to 3.00am on Thursday 23 July.
  • 7.00pm to midnight on Thursday 23 July.
  • Midnight to 3.00am on Friday 24 July.
  • 11.00am to 3:30pm on Friday 24 July.
  • 7.00pm to midnight on Friday 24 July.
  • Midnight to 3.00am on Saturday 25 July.
  • 4pm to 7.00pm on Sunday 26 July (new date).

Anyone feeling unwell - even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat - is urged to self-isolate and have a COVID-19 test. Do not go to work or catch public transport until you are cleared of COVID-19. If you are directed to self-isolate, you must remain in isolation for the full 14 days even if your initial test is negative. If you do develop COVID-19 symptoms, you should be retested, even if you have had a negative result previously.
