NSW government ‘very concerned’ over COVID-19 pub cluster

NSW Health is working to contain a coronavirus outbreak linked to a pub southwest of Sydney.

21 people have tested positive in relation to a cluster at the Crossroads Hotel in Casula.

These include an 18-year-old worker, a Melbourne man, and three close contacts of another man who visited the pub on July 3.
