An alert from NSW Health said anyone who went to the Groomsmen Barber Shop inside Warriewood Square between 11.30am and 12pm on January 6 needs to get tested and isolate until they get their result.

Two new cases on the northern beaches were revealed on Tuesday, and are yet to be linked to the current outbreak which has put tracers on edge.

“This highlights the importance for everyone in the northern beaches to maintain vigilance because we‘ve seen now a couple of cases or so in the last several days of people in the area being diagnosed with COVID-19,” deputy chief health officer Jeremy McAnulty said.

“Particularly in that community, be very vigilant, come forward for testing if you have even the mildest of symptoms.”
