An urgent health alert has been issued for a bottle shop, a used car dealer and an Officeworks as NSW recorded seven new coronavirus infections on Saturday.

Five of the new cases are from western and south-western Sydney and are linked to the Berala cluster, which now totals seven with the original source of infection a man in his 40s. 

Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said there have been a number of venues exposed to coronavirus in the area, which is of ‘concern’ to officials.

Dr Chant said NSW Health is worried about the 'potential transmission risks' at the BSW in Berala (pictured). Anyone who visited the bottle shop between Tuesday December 22 and Thursday December 31 inclusive is advised to check if they were at the shop during specific exposure dates and times
