A man who lives in Sydney's eastern suburbs has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says the man in his 50s has not recently travelled overseas and does not work in a hotel quarantine, border or a health role.

He was tested on Tuesday and the positive result was recorded on Wednesday.

NSW Health contract tracers are urgently working to identify any contacts.

Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said the man is believed to have been infectious since last Friday.

He has a number of close contacts who were being tested and were isolating, Dr Chant said.

He visited a number of venues while potentially infectious, she said.

Anyone who attended one of the following venues at the times specified is asked to immediately get tested and isolate until NSW Health provides further information.
