Latest Covid-19 case locations in our area
NSW Health is working with Monopole Restaurant, Potts Point to assess the risk to patrons and staff who may have been exposed to Covid-19. A person who was infectious visited there from 6 to 8pm on the evening of Sunday October 4.
Contact tracing is underway, and NSW Health will contact close and casual contacts directly.
But anyone who was at Monopole that evening should immediately monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if they develop. After testing, they must remain in isolation until a negative test result is received.
Find details of latest Covid-19 case locations on the NSW.gov.au website.
Testing numbers have dropped recently, which is a concern. NSW Health renews its call for increased testing across Sydney, even if you have the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could be COVID-19.

Advice regarding mask use
The NSW Government is strongly encouraging greater use of masks in high-risk public settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes:
the use of face masks in indoor settings where physical distancing is hard to maintain, such as on public transport or in supermarkets
the use of face masks (where practical) in indoor settings with a higher risk of transmission, such as for the staff of hospitality and customer-facing venues i.e. cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs
during attendance at places of worship
Wearing a mask in any of these settings is not mandatory but is highly recommended, especially in areas where there has been community transmission.
