Multiple COVID exposure sites named in Shellharbour but health authorities are confused about one


Three public health alerts have been issued across Shellharbour as COVID-19 cases continue rise across the LGA.

Casual contact alerts are in place for anyone who was at KFC on Lake Entrance Road on Monday and Woolworths Shell Cove last Thursday afternoon.

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District is seeking clarification for an exposure at Woolworths Shellharbour last Saturday evening because they are not sure which Woolies it is.

"We're seeking clarification on whether it's the Stockland's or Stoney Range Woolworths," the Local Health District posted on Facebook.

People who were at the venues at the times listed below are advised to get tested straight away and self-isolate until they get a negative result.

"If your date of exposure at the venue occurred in the last four days, you must get another test on day five from the date of exposure.

"Wear a mask around others and limit your movements until you get another negative result.

"You should continue to monitor for symptoms and if any symptoms occur, get tested again," NSW Health said.

Casual contact exposure sites:

* KFC Shellharbour, 214 Lake Entrance Road on Monday September 6 between 11:45am and 12:15pm

* Woolworths Shell Cove, 100 Cove Boulevarde  on Thursday September 2 between 4:00pm and 5:00pm

* Woolworths Shellharbour, New Lake Entrance Road on Saturday September 4 between 5:30pm and 6:15pm (Note - The ISLHD is seeking clarification on whether it's the Stockland's or Stoney Range Woolworths)


Don't be surprised if Aldi at Corrimal joins the list shortly.

A sign went up in the front window yesterday advising customers that a COVID positive case visited the store between 2:25pm and 2:56pm last Saturday.
