Where infected Perth man visited

 

Western Australian health authorities have urgently asked those who visited a number of exposure sites to isolate and get tested immediately after it was revealed a hotel quarantine security guard tested positive to COVID-19.

Premier Mark McGowan has plunged the city into a five-day lockdown, with fears the man, in his 20s, could have been infectious in the community from Tuesday, January 26.

The initial list of exposure sites centre mainly in Maylands, a suburb in Perth's inner northeast, including a number of food retail venues, a chemist and a car yard.
