Meanwhile, a busy hotel and a cafe in the South Coast have also been put on alert.
Those who visited the Great Southern Hotel in Eden, on December 30 between 5-6.30pm have been urged to get tested and isolate until given a negative result.
The same instructions apply to anybody who was at Bermi’s Beachside Cafe in Bermagui on December 31 between 9-10am.
These venues were put on the list after two infected Victorians ignored directions to isolate and travelled from Melbourne into regional NSW to enjoy a night away.
The pair are close contacts of a case linked to the outbreak at a Thai restaurant in Black Rock, Melbourne.
Despite being called by contact tracers while on their way into NSW from Victoria and told they were close contacts – which means you have to isolate and get tested – the pair continued on their journey and dined at the hotel and the Bermagui cafe.
Staff at the cafe are in isolation and will be tested for COVID-19.
Meanwhile a BWS in Berala, in Western Sydney has been put on alert after a positive case attended the store on multiple days.
