Aldi customers have been notified after a customer with coronavirus visited a busy Sydney store.

The warning was issued on Friday evening, urging anyone who went to the supermarket in Bonnyrigg, southwest Sydney on August 11, to keep an eye out for symptoms.

Cabramatta State MP Nick Lalich posted the warning on his Facebook page, encouraging shoppers to isolate themselves and seek testing.

“The store has undergone a thorough cleaning and will be safe for customers to return to,” he wrote.

The news comes after New South Wales registered just one new coronavirus case on Friday, and despite running more than 32,500 tests.

NSW Health has also doubled the state’s list of identified hot spot areas, on top of existing warnings for City of Sydney East, Parramatta, Cumberland, Canterbury Bankstown, Campbelltown, Fairfield and Liverpool LGAs.

The new additions include the entire Newcastle area, Woollahra LGA, Hornsby and The Hills LGA, as well as Guildford and Merrylands.
