Pharmacies on COVID watch list


Pharmacies in Logan and western Sydney are among locations visited by people who have tested positive to COVID-19

On Monday NSW Health reported three new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm on Sunday night (one from community transmission), and noted that to date there have been more than two million tests for the novel coronavirus performed in the state.

The case from community transmission is a worker at Liverpool Hospital who was self-isolating while infectious as they had been identified as a close contact of a patient.

The Department advised that people who attended the Auburn Ramadan Pharmacy from 1.30 to 2.30pm on Wednesday, 19 August should monitor for symptoms and, if they appear, immediately isolate and get tested.

These people are not considered to be close contacts or to self-isolate in the meantime.

People who went to the Westfield Shopping Centre Burwood from 6 to 7pm on Thursday 20 August, including Kmart and Woolworths from 6.30 to 7pm, as well as Service NSW Burwood from 2.30 to 3pm on Friday 21 August, are advised similarly.

Meanwhile in Queensland, a Chemist Warehouse is among a long list of locations visited by people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 linked to the Brisbane youth detention centre cluster.

People who were at the Chemist Warehouse on Waratah Drive at Crestmead, on the afternoon of August 18, are also being asked to keep an eye on their health and be tested if they develop symptoms.

Also on this list is the Forest Lake Shopping Centre, on August 13; Westfield Carindale on August 19; the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre on August 17 and 19, and the Riverlink Shopping Centre in Ipswich on the morning of August 16.
