After a weekend of sunny weather in Sydney, the city has now been put on alert with a series of worrying virus warnings.

Yesterday, new cases were confirmed at a childcare centre and shopping mall in Sydney’s north shore and an urgent warning was issued for bus commuters to isolate immediately amid a growing cluster in the city’s eastern suburbs.

Investigators are scrambling to track down passengers on the X39 Sydney Buses service that left Pitt Street opposite Australia Square in the CBD at 6.08pm and arrived at Clovelly and Carrington Roads at Randwick at 6.40pm on Thursday August 20 after two commuters later tested positive.

There are now warnings in place across the city after recorded cases visited shopping centres, pubs and gyms. A school and an early learning centre have also closed.

The latest affected locations are Chatswood Chase shopping centre, St Paul’s Catholic College in Greystanes, Reddam Early Learning Centre at Lindfield, Highfield Caringbah pub,  Fitness First Randwick and Broadway shopping centre in Ultimo.

NSW recorded seven new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, including a student at a western Sydney school and five linked to the CBD cluster, which has grown to 28.
