New exposure sites added in northern beaches, Sydney’s west
Late last night, NSW Health released several new exposure sites.
Worryingly, many of the venues listed are in western Sydney, with a few on the northern beaches and north shore too. These areas are not subject to the new stay-at-home/lockdown orders that came into effect overnight.
