A positive case visited Culture Kings on George St in Sydney’s CBD on Monday December 28.

Anyone who was there between 1pm and 2pm should get tested immediately if any symptoms develop.

Health authorities also expanded an alert for a bottle shop in Sydney’s west.

NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant said the two positive cases travelled from Victoria to NSW on December 30 and dined at the Great Southern Hotel in Eden between 5pm and 6.30pm.

One of the cases also ate at the Bermi’s Beachside Cafe in Bermagui between 9am and 10am on December 31.

Anyone who attended the Swallowed Anchor at any time on December 19 must get tested and self-isolate until they receive further advice from NSW Health.
