Sydney aged care worker tests positive to COVID-19

A staff member at a Sydney nursing home has tested positive for COVID-19 after dining at the Thai Rock restaurant in Wetherill Park.

All Ashfield Baptist Home residents and staff will be tested for the virus today in a bid to prevent an outbreak at the aged care facility.

The staffer who tested positive to coronavirus dined at the Thai Rock restaurant on July 12 before working three shifts at the aged care facility.

The Sydney Local Health District said the risk to other staff and residents was considered to be very low as the staff member wore masks, gloves and gowns when working and did not work while symptomatic.
