Two Sydney schools are closed after students tested positive to COVID-19 while the number of cases linked to a CBD gym has grown to 64.

The prestigious Kincoppal-Rose Bay School in Sydney’s east is closed for on-site learning on Monday after two year 7 students were among the 10 new cases reported in NSW on Sunday.

Lidcombe Public School in western Sydney is also closed after a new case was linked to the school.

Both schools are undergoing a deep clean and contact tracing is underway.

Of the 10 new cases, two are under investigation – a man in his 40s from northern Sydney and a child from western Sydney.

Three have been linked to the City Tattersalls Club gym cluster, bringing its total to 64, and one is a contact of a previously reported case.

The other four are returned overseas travellers in hotel quarantine.


One of the new cases has been linked to Hyde Park Medical Centre in Liverpool Street in Sydney’s CBD.

Patients who attended the centre’s physiotherapy, pathology, dermatology and dental practices and pharmacy on the ground floor between August 24 and September 5 have been asked to watch for symptoms.

Another case was confirmed in a health worker who wore PPE at Concord Hospital on September 1 and Liverpool Hospital on September 3.

All patients and staff in close contact have been advised to isolate and get tested.

Meanwhile, nine people have been charged after small anti-lockdown protests took place on Saturday in the Sydney CBD, western Sydney’s Olympic Park and Byron Bay in northern NSW.

Police also handed out 81 fines worth $1000 each for alleged breaches of public health orders at the protests.
