Residents across Goulburn and Southern Highlands have been put on alert after a third Covid exposure site was listed on the NSW Health's venues of concern.
A push for increased testing follows as Coles Express 1/3 Sowerby Street, Goulburn was added to the list of Covid-19 exposure sites.
Anyone who attended Coles Express on Friday, July 16 between 11.50am-12pm is considered a close contact and must get tested and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result.
They should also continue to monitor for any symptoms and call 1800 943 553 unless they have already been contacted by NSW Health.
The Coles Express was deep cleaned and two staff members are in isolation until they receive a negative test result.
As of July 21, 11 am there were 48 Covid-19 tests reported at Goulburn Base Hospital. There are no active cases of Covid-19 in the Goulburn region.
A Southern NSW Local Health District spokesperson said venues were added to the exposure list when it was not possible to contact everyone who added the venue in the time frame.
"Venues are added if there's some potential of community exposure if someone can't be contacted or if they don't check in with a QR code or sign in," they said.
On Monday July 19, NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant identified Mittagong and Burradoo in the Southern Highlands as sites of concern for testing.
It was confirmed to the Southern Highland News that one of the Covid-19 postive cases was a doctor from Campbelltown Hospital who resides in the Southern Highlands.
A second case was confirmed in Mittagong.
There are two active cases of Covid-19 in the community, however there are no community transmission sites or venues of concern.
Earlier this month Goulburn registered two Covid positive cases. The first was an alleged painter who worked on the $150 million Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment who worked while infectious on July 9.
The second covid positive case was on July 10, with an alert issued for anyone who attended BP Northbound Marulan and Hungry Jacks Marulan on July 10 between 5 pm and 5:30 pm.
A spokesperson from South Western Sydney Health District said people were urged to come forward for testing if they had any symptoms, "no matter how mild" to ensure the safety of the community.
Residents are also urged to check the NSW Government website regularly as the list of venues of concern and relevant health advice is updated as investigations continue.
