Another Sydney Fitness First gym is forced to close after gym goer tests positive to coronavirus 

Another Sydney gym has been forced to close after being visited by a confirmed COVID-19 case. 

The gym goer attended Fitness First in St Leonards between 9am and 10.30am on Monday before testing positive for the illness.

A spokesman for the club said the club has followed the safety advice from NSW Health.

‘The club is currently undergoing a process of deep cleaning in addition to the increased daily cleaning that has been taking place since the club reopened in June.’ 

The positive case comes after Fitness First in Kings Cross was forced to close temporarily after being hit with a COVID-19 case. 

NSW Health said the recent case had attended the Apollo Restaurant in Potts Point on Saturday, July 25 where a cluster has formed. 

New South Wales confirmed another 18 coronavirus cases on Thursday as fears of a growing outbreak continue to rise. 

Clusters appear to be spreading throughout Sydney in particular, as venues from Bondi to the inner west close their doors in the wake of the crisis.

Of the 18 latest cases, four are associated with the Thai Rock Wetherill Park cluster in Sydney’s south-west which has risen to 89.

There were another four cases linked to The Apollo restaurant, while two are linked to the funeral cluster in Sydney’s south-west.

Another two are returned travellers in hotel quarantine while six are under investigation.

NSW Health urges anyone who lives in or have visited hotspot areas in the past two weeks to get tested if they start displaying the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms.

They include Potts Point, Carnes Hill shops, Prestons, Bonnyrigg, Wetherill Park, Mt Pritchard, Bankstown City Plaza, Cabramatta and popular ski resort Perisher in southern NSW.
