Another of the new infections is a household contact of a previously reported case linked to the St Paul’s Catholic College Greystanes cluster. 

The Blue Mountains Grammar School is also being cleaned after one of the new infections was traced back to a student. 

Health authorities have also issued a warning for an aquatic centre in the Blue Mountains.

‘A previously reported case attended Katoomba Aquatic Centre on Friday 4 September from 11.30am-1.30pm,’ NSW Health said.

‘Anyone who was at the venue at this time is advised to monitor for symptoms and immediately self-isolate and get tested if symptoms develop, however mild, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.’

Commuters on two bus routes in the eastern suburbs have also been told to stay alert for any symptoms.

These include the 379 Bronte Beach – Bondi Junction station route on September 7  at 11.08am-11.24am and the 316 Avoca St Randwick – Bondi Junction station route on September 7 at 10.44am-11.05am.

NSW recorded ten new cases on Friday with six in hotel quarantine and the rest linked to known clusters. 

Two of Friday’s cases were patrons from the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club in Sydney’s Waverley, after infected revellers went to the bar on several nights last week.  

Health authorities are racing to trace any contacts of known infections from the Legion Club in Waverley.

Two of the seven cases recorded in NSW on Thursday were also linked to the club that has now been closed.  

Anyone who was at the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club in Waverley between 5pm and 6.30pm on August 28 has been told to immediately get tested for COVID-19 and isolate until they receive a negative result.

The two persons involved also attended the club while infectious on the evenings of September 1, 4, 5 and 6.   

This prompted NSW Deputy Chief Health Officer, Dr Jeremy McAnulty to warn everyone in the Waverley area to monitor for symptoms. 

‘Anyone who lives in that area is urged to be alert for symptoms of COVID-19 and isolate, seek testing right away if they occur and stay isolated until a negative test is received,’ Dr McAnulty said.  

NSW has had 54 deaths from coronavirus in total.
