NSW records 13 new virus cases as another Sydney pub forced to close

Another Sydney pub has closed its doors to undergo a deep clean after a customer tested positive to COVID-19.

Wests League Club in Leumeah confirmed the news in a statement on Wednesday, revealing they were informed of the case by health authorities last night.

“The Wests League Club was last night advised by NSW Health that a person who has tested positive to Covid19 visited our Leagues Club on Friday evening at 8pm and this same person visited again in the early hours of Sunday morning (between 12am – 2:30am),” the club said.


“Subsequently we made the decision to close the club from 11:30pm last night.

The venue said a “deep clean” of the premises is currently underway, with the Club expected to re-open at midday today.

“By the time that we re-open, there will have been over 100+ man hours of cleaning and sanitising from additional staff and contractors to ensure that our Club is cleaner than it has ever been,” they said.

“We are very committed to the safety of our staff, customers, and wider community and will continue to operate under the advice of NSW Health given to us.

“NSW Health advice only requires those experiencing symptoms are encouraged to get tested and stay home.”

It comes after the Macarthur Tavern in Campbelltown also confirmed a positive case this morning.

“The patron was in our venue on Saturday the 11th July between 9pm and 12 midnight,” the pub wrote.

“This morning, the whole venue is undergoing a deep clean by a company that specialises in deep clean sanitising as an extra precaution.

“We are confident that we will be successful in sanitising the venue and stop the spread of the virus. From 3pm today, the venue will be open and safer than ever.”

NSW has recorded 13 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours after more than 17,660 people were tested.

Ten of those are associated with the outbreak at the Crossroads Hotel, bringing the total number of cases linked to the pub to 30.

The remaining three new cases were acquired overseas.

It brings the total number of coronavirus cases in the state to 3,328.
