New case in Sydney COVID outbreak

By | March 16, 2021

Another returned traveller has tested positive to COVID-19 while staying on the same floor where a security guard who tested positive worked.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian confirmed the news on Wednesday morning and said the case could be the “missing link” health authorities need.

It is believed the guard contracted the virus while working on the 11th floor at the Sofitel in Wentworth but officials are yet to determine how, given he did not breach any protocols.

A previous returned traveller at the hotel had tested positive, but the link between them and the guard is still unknown.
