Warning for residents in Sydney's east as another restaurant worker tests positive for coronavirus

NSW records 17 new cases of COVID-19

Health authorities say two new coronavirus cases are linked to restaurants and bars in Sydney's eastern suburbs and south-west.

The Apollo restaurant in Potts Point has closed for cleaning after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

Anyone who attended the restaurant between July 23 and July 25 is being asked to quarantine for 14 days after their visit.

It's the second restaurant in the suburb to be linked with the virus after two other cases were confirmed at the Thai Rock restaurant in Potts Point.

NSW Health warned anyone who lived in Potts Point or had recently visited the area, to get tested if they developed coronavirus symptoms.
