All shoppers who attended an entire inner-east Sydney shopping centre over a two-hour period on Monday have been ordered to get tested, as the city’s COVID-19 exposure site list continues to grow.

Meanwhile, visitors to the Northmead Bowling Club over the course of six and a half hours on Sunday afternoon are being told to contact NSW Health, get tested and await further advice.

The department on Thursday night declared all of Zetland’s East Village Shopping Centre, from 11am to 1pm on Monday, as a casual contact exposure site, requiring visitors to isolate until they receive a negative test.

Anyone who visited the centre’s Lorna Jane store over the same period must quarantine for two weeks regardless of the result and a health alert has also been issued for Bondi’s The Health Emporium for Tuesday.

It was earlier revealed the Harris Farm store on Norton Street, Leichhardt, was visited by a positive coronavirus case on Tuesday, June 15 between 9.50am and 10.05am.

Anyone who was at the store during this period is asked to immediately contact NSW Health, get tested and isolate until further notice.

This latest venue joins a list already impacting Sydney’s eastern suburbs and parts of the city’s north.

Sydney exposure sites

A series of locations from Redfern to the eastern suburbs and now the Inner West have been identified as potential exposure sites.

Anyone who was at the 1.45pm screening of Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard at Bondi Junction on Sunday must get tested immediately and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result.

The same rules apply to anyone on the 200 bus from Bondi Junction interchange to Blue St, North Sydney on June 15 from about 2.25pm to 5pm.

Long queues began forming as early as 7.30am in Bondi after a series of COVID-19 alerts were issued for venues across the eastern suburbs.

The alerts were issued late last night after a second new case of coronavirus was detected in Bondi with cafes, department stores, a movie theatre and a car wash now included on a growing list of exposure sites.

Late yesterday, NSW Health revealed the new case was a household contact of a man in his 60s, whose positive COVID-19 test was announced earlier in the day.

The first identified case is a driver and transports international flight crews, NSW Health said. 9News understands he is not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Urgent investigations into the source of the infection and contact tracing are underway, as is genome sequencing.

NSW Health is reaching out to close contacts of the man. On Wednesday night, two locations at the East Village Shopping Centre in Zetland, a bus route, several sites in Bondi Junction and a car wash in Redfern were added to the list of exposure sites. (Full list below.)

According to health authorities, NSW currently has 36 active cases of coronavirus with three of those counted as returned overseas travellers in the past 24 hours.

The last previous local coronavirus case in the state was reported on May 5, 42 days ago.

NSW has confirmed 5437 cases of coronavirus since the pandemic began and a total of 56 people have died from the virus.

A total of 1,737,557 people in NSW have had at least one vaccine dose since February 22, 2021 and there have been 17,223 doses administered in the past 24 hours.
