The coronavirus cluster at Crossroads Hotel in Sydney’s southwest has grown by 10, taking the total number of infections linked to the venue to 28.
New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Tuesday announced an additional 13 new cases of COVID-19 had been identified overnight.
The state has now recorded a total of 3,316 cases since the pandemic began.
Of the new infections, just two were from returned travellers completing their mandatory hotel quarantine, while another one was a contact of an overseas case.
All 10 other diagnoses were linked to the cluster at the hotel in Casula, which first broke out on July 3.
Any patrons who visited the hotel between July 3 and July 토토사이터10 have been urged to self isolate immediately and seek out coronavirus testing.

New South Wales Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said officials were particularly concerned about people who visited the hotel on July 4, July 5 and July 9.
All 10 of the new cases have been identified in people living within southwest Sydney.
Three of the new infections came from people who directly visited the hotel on July 3, including a 40-year-old woman, a 30-year-old man and a 50-year-old man from Melbourne.
From there, seven people who were in close contact with those patrons have since tested positive, including a teenager who went on to work at Kmart in Casula.
A child has also been diagnosed with COVID-19 from the cluster.
A teenager, who works at a Kmart store in Casula, 솔카지노 tested positive to COVID-19 after reportedly catching the virus from their 18-year-old friend, who works at the infected pub.

NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant on Monday said the employee worked at the store from 5pm to midnight on Friday July 10.
‘People were at that store at that time and are urged to watch for symptoms, self-isolate and get tested,’ she said.
Casula Mall Centre Management said the Kmart worker tested positive to coronavirus on Monday.
‘We have been in contact with both our Kmart store and 메리트카지노 their head office and this case has been confirmed.
The Kmart employee and fellow staff are now isolating,’ the centre said in a statement.
‘Kmart closed as of 6pm Monday 13 July 2020 and has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
‘Throughout the centre our focus remains on regular and diligent cleaning, we also undertook a further deep clean of the general mall which included all key areas such as hard surfaces, food courts and bathrooms.’

The NSW government on Tuesday announced stricter operating rules for pubs.
The new rules for pubs and hotels include a limit of 300 people regardless of size, and group bookings capped at 10 people.
The changes – decided during a meeting of senior government ministers on Monday night – will not apply to clubs, restaurants or 파라오카지노 The Star casino.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian reiterated life would not return to ‘normal’ until a vaccine was secured and refused to rule out tightening restrictions further.
Earlier on Tuesday, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced New South Wales local government areas of Liverpool and Campbelltown would be considered COVID-19 hotspots from midday.

Anybody from those areas, or who has travelled within the regions, will not be permitted to enter Queensland.
Since the Crossroads Hotel cluster was announced, 18 people who are currently in Queensland have presented for testing after revealing they had visited the hotel in July.
They are all awaiting their results in quarantine.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles said that number was likely to grow.
‘Any Queenslanders who have been to the Crossroads Hotel from July 3 to July 10 inclusive should get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible and then immediately self-isolate,’ he said.
‘The hotel is a busy stopover for many travellers, so it is very likely that there are a number of Queenslanders who have been there during this period.’
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced her state had declared suburbs within the two local government areas ‘COVID-19 hot spots’.
