Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) was notified on Thursday afternoon that a COVID-19 positive case visited three sites in Goulburn and one in Marulan on Tuesday, July 20.
Sites open to the public were Bunnings Goulburn, and KFC Marulan. Additional cleaning has been undertaken at both stores overnight and all staff will be tested for COVID19 on Friday.
"Overnight, NSW Health has sent a text to staff and visitors who checked in to either of these venues using the Service NSW QR-check-in system," a spokesperson said.
Visitors will be classified as close contacts. Staff members are being contacted to determine each one's exposure.
Anyone who visited Bunnings Goulburn on July 20 between 12:30pm and 12:45pm is a close contact and must immediately get tested and self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result, and call 1800 943 553 unless they have already been contacted by NSW Health.
Anyone who was at KFC Marulan on July 20 between 1:30pm and 1:50pm is a close contact and must immediately get tested and self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result, and call 1800 943 553 unless they have already been contacted by NSW Health.
In two other Goulburn locations, there was only interaction between the limited staff and the case.
Three contacts have been identified and managed by the SNSWLHD Public Health Unit. Testing on these three overnight returned negative results.
Southern NSW Local Health District is urging anyone feeling unwell - even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath, headache, tiredness, loss of taste or smell, nausea, diarrhoea or muscle aches - to self-isolate and seek COVID-19 testing.
