Diners must isolate

DINERS at Newtown’s ‘It’s Time for Thai’ restaurant on Friday, August 28, will need to get tested immediately and self-isolate after being deemed ‘close contacts’ of a person with Covid-19.

On Tuesday, NSW Health said anyone who was at the King Street restaurant between 5-8pm, needs to have a test, regardless of symptoms, and isolate for a full 14 days since attending, even if their test result is negative.
Public transport users and shoppers in King Street on the same day will also need to be on alert for symptoms of Covid-19 and get tested immediately if they develop any after they were deemed as potential ‘casual contacts’.
It includes anyone at Newtown Train Station between 5.10-5.20pm; at the BWS bottle shop between 5.15-5.40pm; and the Off Ya Tree clothing and body piercing store between 7.15-7.55pm.
With the virus continuing to circulate in the community, NSW Health is continuing to urge people to stay at least 1.5m apart and to wear a mask in situations – especially on public transport – where physical distancing is difficult.
