A person with COVID-19 visited popular locations in NSW, including a Woolworths, McDonalds, Bunnings, and Ikea.
NSW Health issued a public health alert on Tuesday afternoon urging anyone who has visited the key sites to get tested for coronavirus.
The shops and restaurants are in southwest Sydney, and a pop-up clinic has been rolled out at Oran Park to help people get tested.

After testing, they must remain in isolation until a negative test result is received.

Testing numbers have dropped recently, which NSW Health said was a “concern”.
“NSW Health is appealing to the community to come forward for testing right away if you have even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could be COVID-19,” a spokesperson said.
The new pop-up clinic to get tested is at Julia Reserve Community Centre walk-in, Peter Brock Drive, Oran Park.
It will be open from 1pm on Tuesday and will remain open daily, from 8am to 6pm, until Sunday, October 13.
