Three new people infected with COVID-19 in Sydney visited Kmart, Westfield and Fitness First, sparking fears they may have spread the disease further.
NSW Health are currently contracting new cases and issued a public warning on Tuesday, saying people who visited the same locations as the infected people should get tested and isolate.
One of the infected people attended a pilates class at Fitness First in Carlingford from 8:15 am to 9:15 am on Saturday.
All those who attended the same class are considered close contacts and must immediately get tested and isolate for 14 days from the class.

NSW Health is directly contacting those who attended.
Anyone else who went to Fitness First at the same time but didn’t attend the pilates class are still considered casual contacts and should get tested.
People who attended six other Sydney venues are also considered casual contacts and should be tested on the advice of NSW Health.
Another infected person went to Kmart in Narellan in Sydney’s south west from 6pm to 7pm on Friday.
Three businesses in Penrith in Sydney’s west have also been put on alert.
Those who attended Penrith Homemaker Centre from 11am to 1pm on Sunday should get tested as well as those who went to Guzman y Gomez between 1:30pm and 2pm.
The final Penrith business is Home Co, where shoppers who attended between 2pm and 2:30pm on Sunday should also be tested.
An infected person also went to the popular Westfield in Parramatta in Sydney’s west on Monday between 9:30am and 11am.
The last location on alert is Castle Towers Shopping Centre in the city’s north west, where an infected person was shopping for an hour from 12pm to 1pm on Monday.
The state health department is ‘concerned’ that testing numbers have dropped recently and is encouraging increased testing across Sydney.
NSW Health said it is ‘especially important for people across West and South West Sydney’ to get tested since the new cases are located there.
