Coles Supermarket in Nowra and Woolworths in Bomaderry have been identified as a potential COVID exposure sites, after a confirmed case visited the stores a week ago.
Both supermarkets have put up signage stating they have been notified by NSW Health that a person who tested positive to COVID-19 visited their store.
Neither supermarket is listed on the NSW Health case location website.
NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro reiterated to the Register on Thursday that sites are only published onto the website where they are considered a 'high risk' to the community.
"Remember, exposure sites aren't necessarily all published (online) if we are able to identify all those that were exposed for that period of time," said Mr Barilaro.
"We use QR codes and CCTV, if they're not front facing businesses or venues, and if we are comfortable that we've captured everybody in that exposure, then we don't put those exposure sites up."
Coles Nowra said they were advised by NSW Health that a person with COVID-19 visited the store between 10:13am and 10:20am on Thursday, September 9.
The signage outlines that the supermarket has since undergone frequent cleaning and sanitisation, as well as a "comprehensive" deep clean since the person visited the store.
The sign also states NSW has confirmed there is "no current risk to the public" and customers can visit the store safely.
All customers are to monitor for symptoms and if symptoms develop, to get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.
Woolworths in Bomaderry has also been notified by NSW Health that a person who tested positive for COVID-19 visited the store.
The person visited the store between: 5:10pm to 5:45pm, September 9; 1:05pm to 1:45pm September 10; and 2:50pm to 3:10pm September 12.
The Woolworths Group website confirmed the store had undergone a deep clean since the positive case visited the store.
