Thai Rock restaurant in Potts Point closed for cleaning after staff member tests positive for COVID-19

Anyone who attended the outlet between 15 July and 25 July were told to get tested.

A second Thai Rock restaurant in Sydney has been closed for cleaning after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

In a public health update, NSW Health directed persons who attended the Thai Rock Restaurant at Potts Point for two hours or more between 15 July and 25 July to immediately be tested for and self-isolate for 14 days since they were last there, regardless of symptoms.

“Anyone who attended Thai Rock Potts Point for less than two hours on these dates should monitor for symptoms and immediately isolate and seek testing if they appear,” it said.

The update follows investigation into a case announced last week who had reported attending Thai Rock Potts Point on 17 July. Investigations into the source of the infection and contact tracing are under way.

Thai Rock Potts Point also has the same owners as Thai Rock Wetherill Park, which has now been linked to 67 cases of COVID-19. However, investigations to date have not identified links between cases at the two sites.

“If you are directed to isolate, you must remain in isolation for a full 14 days even if your initial test is negative. If you do develop COVID-19 symptoms, you should be retested, even if you have had a negative result previously. Anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat – is urged to self-isolate and seek testing. Do not go to work or catch public transport until you are cleared of COVID-19,” the update further advised.
