Seven new cases of coronavirus have been diagnosed in NSW.

Two are returned travellers in hotel quarantine and five are linked to a known case or cluster.

One is a student at St Pauls Catholic College Greystanes, two are linked to the Concord Hospital outbreak, bringing the hospitals (including Liverpool Hospital) cluster to 14.

Two new cases are from Sydney’s south east and both visited the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club at Waverley where diners have been warned to isolate immediately.

NSW Health said one of Wednesday’s confirmed cases which was under investigation also attended the club.

One of the positive cases attended the Legion club on several occasions while infectious. Now health authorities are racing to identify members who were there at the same time.

Anyone who attended the Legion Club on the following days and times are a close contact and must isolate for two weeks and get tested:

  • Tuesday, September 1 from 6.00pm
  • Friday, September 4 from 4:30pm
  • Saturday, September 5 from 4.15pm
  • Sunday, September 6 from 5.00pm
  • Monday, September 7 from 3.00pm

The news comes just a day after NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she “begrudges” the Queensland premier for her tough border restrictions.

“I do begrudge her because (of the) situation. We (have) low community transmission and NSW has shown you can have open borders,” Ms Berejiklian told the Today show on Wednesday.

“We don’t mind. We have Queenslanders coming in (because) we open our borders to everybody.”
