Two people with coronavirus visited a popular Sydney pub while infectious, prompting a direction to other patrons to get tested immediately.

NSW Health alerted the public on Wednesday after the two cases visited the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club at Waverley “on a number of occasions while infectious”.

Anyone who attended the club between 5-6:30pm on Friday August 28 is directed to immediately get tested and isolate until they received a negative result.

The cases also attended the club while infectious on the evenings of Tuesday September 1, Friday September 4, Saturday September 5 and Sunday September 6.

“Anyone who attended the club during these times must monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if they develop,” a NSW Health spokesperson said.

“After testing, they must remain in isolation until a negative test result is received.

“NSW Health is working with the club to contact and assess the exposure risk to members and guests.”

NSW recorded nine new coronavirus cases on Wednesday.
