THIRTY new cases of coronavirus have been identified in NSW as the Northern Beaches cluster grows. While the Central West and Orange has dodged tighter COVID restrictions for now, the same can not be said for residents in other parts of the state. People living in Greater Sydney, parts of the Blue Mountains and the Central Coast are no longer allowed to have more than 10 people visit their homes. There are also increased restrictions on hospitality venues in these areas with businesses having to conform to the four square metre rule once again. Dancing, singing and chanting have also been banned in the hotspot areas. The changes were announced by Premier Gladys Berijiklian at a press conference on Sunday. Public health alerts had already been released for spots in Forster and Raymond Terrace. Anyone who attended Raymond Terrace McDonald's on December 15 is being urged to get tested immediately and isolate. Anyone who attended the venue at that time is considered a casual contact. They should get tested immediately and isolate until they receive a negative result, NSW Health says. Already Hunter residents have lined up for COVID testing, with queues reported at the University of Newcastle testing facility on Sunday morning. In Forster, anyone who attended Café Toscano - particularly in the outdoor verandah area - at 1 Wallis Street on Wednesday, December 16, between 6pm and 7.45pm is considered a close contact of a confirmed case. Or those who attended Beach Bums Café Corner Beach Street and North Street, Forster: Wednesday December 16, 8am - 9am and Thursday December 17, 8am-9am They should get tested immediately and self-isolate until December 30. Other people who attended the venue for less than an hour during this time should monitor for symptoms, and get tested immediately if they appear. The northern beaches cluster grew by 23 cases to 40 infections on Saturday, before a further 30 were announced Sunday. Northern beaches residents are under stay-at-home orders, with lockdown expected to last until Wednesday in an effort to get the situation under control before Christmas. Anyone in the state with even the mildest symptoms such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, is asked to come forward immediately for testing, then isolate until a negative result is received.
