A childcare centre in Sydney’s north west has been closed for deep cleaning after a staff member tested positive to COVID-19.

The employee worked at Reddam Early Learning Centre at Lindfield while unknowingly infectious for three days between August 25 and 27.

The positive case is a household contact of a previously reported case linked to the CBD cluster and will be included in Monday’s figures.

There are now 28 cases linked to the CBD cluster, with five more recorded on Sunday.

The news comes after NSW Health issued an alert for passengers who travelled on the X39 bus which left Pitt St, opposite Australia Square, at 6.08pm August 20 and arrived at the corner of Clovelly Rd and Carrington Rd, Randwick, at 6.40pm.

People on board are now considered close contacts and must get tested and self-isolate.

A positive case, who was wearing a mask, travelled on the bus and another passenger has since tested positive.
