A Chemist Warehouse, supermarket and a Japanese restaurant are among a host of new Covid-19 exposure sites announced by NSW Health.

After the state recorded 239 new local cases on Sunday, the health department updated new venues of concern associated with confirmed cases of the virus.

The latest venues were announced on Sunday afternoon after the NSW Health Department’s Dr Jeremy McAnulty said seven people aged in their 20s were in intensive care with Covid-19.

“It shows that the disease can be very serious in younger people as well is older people,” he said.

There was concern that young people aged between 18 to 39 were “driving a lot of the epidemic”, Dr McAnulty said.

Anyone who attended the following venues at the times listed is a close contact and must get tested and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result.
