The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District has confirmed two people infected with COVID-19 who dined at the wildginger restaurant in Huskisson on Saturday, August 8 were linked to the Tangara school cluster in Sydney.
According to a statement attributed to Public Health director Curtis Gregory, the Sydneysiders were at the restaurant from 7.45pm to 10.30pm.
"These two people are from outside the Local Health District and are linked with the Tangara School for Girls cluster. Both cases have been counted in the public health alert issued by NSW Health on August 11.
"Patrons and staff who were at the venue at the same time as the two cases have been instructed to self-isolate for 14 days and to get tested for COVID-19 if directed or if they develop symptoms."
The restaurant has closed for two weeks but, in a statement posted to Facebook, it said no staff had tested positive to the virus.
They have gone into two weeks' self-isolation.
In its Facebook post, it assured patrons it had complied with all COVID-safe protocols and had been checked for compliance on Saturday.
