"She is in isolation and contact tracing is underway".

A patron who attended Mounties at Mt Pritchard and the bistro at Pritchard's Hotel while infectious has since tested positive.

Two venues in South West Sydney have also been linked to cases.

A prominent Illawarra businessman has revealed he has tested positive to COVID-19 as part of the growing Sydney Thai Rock restaurant cluster. "We have followed the practices outlined in our Covid-safe plan, based on the guidelines issued by NSW Health, including rigorous cleaning on a daily basis".

If you visited for less than two hours, monitor your symptoms closely, NSW Health says.

"The safety of our passengers and crew is always our number one priority and we have extra measures in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of our customers, including enhanced cleaning and masks and sanitising wipes".

The last case is a returned traveller in hotel quarantine.

The case centres on undocumented meetings that Lauber and Infantino are alleged to have held in 2016 and 2017. Michel Platini, the favorite to succeed Blatter and then serving as UEFA president, was also suspended.

Its Potts Point sister restaurant is connected to two additional cases, taking the size of a cluster in the densely populated eastern Sydney suburb to seven, with one new case also linked to nearby restaurant The Apollo.

The third new case is a staff member of Apollo.

New South Wales Health announced on Monday night night everyone who attended The Apollo restaurant at Potts Point from Thursday 23 to Saturday 25 July should self isolate for 14 days from the date of their visit.

As has been the advice for months now, those with symptoms - coughs, fever, sore or scratchy throat, shortness of breath or loss of smell or taste - are encouraged to get tested and self-isolate while awaiting results.

Anyone who visited between midnight to 3am on Thursday, July 23, 11am to 3pm on Friday, July 24 and 8pm to midnight on Friday, July 24, or midnight to 3am on Saturday, July 25, has been advised to - you guessed it - seek testing immediately, self-isolate for 14 days regardless of symptoms, and grab another round of testing should symptoms occur.

Coronavirus restrictions on NSW hospitality venues will be extended to gyms, including the requirement for a permanent on-site hygiene marshal, as the state reports 19 new COVID-19 cases.

NSW Health is also asking all people who live in or have visited the Potts Point area in the past two weeks to get tested if they have any symptoms of COVID-19.
