NSW Health has confirmed nine coronavirus cases are linked to a pub in south-west Sydney including an 18-year-old staff member.

NSW Health has broadened its advice around the outbreak at the Crossroads Hotel in Casula, urging anyone who visited the pub between July 3 and 10 to self-isolate and get tested.

A woman in her 30s and a man in his 50s tested positive after visiting the pub on July 3.

The male patron has since been linked to three positive cases among members of his household in the Blue Mountains.

NSW Health this afternoon confirmed more cases linked to the pub.

The teenage worker, a close contact of the worker, a Sydney woman in her 40s and a Victorian man in his 20s who both had dinner at the pub on July 3 have all tested positive.

NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant said about 600 people visited the hotel on July 3.

The staff member was also working that night and worked “subsequent days” at the pub, Dr Chant said.

“Clearly there are a large number of people impacted,” she said.
