Coles, Event Cinemas among the new public exposure sites to viruses
Western Australian health officials reported Coles and Event Cinemas among new public exhibition venues after a Perth security guard contracted COVID-19 in hotel quarantine and spread the virus to two of his friends.
The man, in his 20s, tested positive for COVID-19, with two of the seven people sharing the man’s house also having tested positive.
The guard had worked at the Pan Pacific Hotel on April 24, 25 and 26, on the same floor as two hotel quarantine residents who had tested positive for coronavirus.
Since then, WA Health has announced a number of new sites that the Perth security officer and the other two visited while infectious.
