Shoppers who visited the popular Culture Kings clothing store in Sydney have been ordered to get tested for COVID-19 and isolate immediately as other venues across New South Wales are put on alert.
NSW Health put out the alert for anyone who visited the store on George St, in the city’s CBD, between 1-2pm on Monday December 28.
The venue had been visited by a confirmed coronavirus case and all shoppers who were there at the same time have been ordered to isolate until further notice.

Meanwhile, a busy hotel and a cafe in the South Coast have also been put on alert.
Those who visited the Great Southern Hotel in Eden, on December 30 between 5-6.30pm have been urged to get tested.
The same instructions apply to anybody who was at Bermi’s Beachside Cafe in Bermagui on December 31 between 9-10am.
These venues were put on the list after two infected Victorians ignored directions to isolate and travelled from Melbourne into regional NSW to enjoy a night away.
The pair are close contacts of a case linked to the outbreak at a Thai restaurant in Black Rock, Melbourne.
Despite being called by contact tracers while on their way into NSW from Victoria and told they were close contacts – which means you have to isolate and get tested – the pair continued on their journey and dined at the hotel and the Bermagui cafe.
Staff at the cafe are in isolation and will be tested for Covid-19.
There were three new cases recorded in NSW on Friday, all from Western Sydney and under investigation.
More to come.
The two Victorians visited the Great Southern Hotel in Eden, in the southern region of NSW, on Wednesday from 5pm to 6.30pm
The pair then ate at Bermi’s Beachside Cafe in Bermagui from about 9am to 10am on Thursday
