The Milperra restaurant is close to the Crossroads Hotel where a super spreader is responsible for infecting 34 people.
The so-called 'super spreader' responsible for more than 30 coronavirus cases in Sydney's south-west has "one of the highest infection levels" health authorities have seen.
A total of 34 cases have now been linked to the Crossroads Hotel at Casula, stemming from a man who worked at a freight company and travelled interstate from Victoria.
In the space of 15 days, the unnamed man sparked an outbreak stretching more than 100km from Parramatta to Picton.
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said young people can be amongst the "most infectious".
"We've got a young bloke from that latest cluster – he actually had one of the highest infection levels that we've seen so his viral load was quite capable of spreading it basically anybody near him," Mr Hazzard told 2GB's Ben Fordham today.
"So, we all need to be on high alert. It's our grandparents and our parents, particularly, and the over 50s and the over 70s who are most at risk.
"We really need young people to wake up to the fact that they can be extremely dangerous to their older relatives."https://omny.fm/shows/ben-fordham-full-show/health-ministers-warning-to-young-australians/embed?style=cover
The man who sparked the outbreak, who works at a Wetherill Park freight company and is not a truck driver, set off from Victoria on June 30 and immediately became a super spreader, infecting six Sydney colleagues before they all headed to the Crossroads Hotel.
Two more venues in nearby suburbs have since recorded new infections.
Frankie's Food Factory in Milperra confirmed on Facebook overnight NSW Health had been in contact to inform them about the diagnosis.
"We have been advised that NSW Health will contact patrons who were at Frankie's Milperra last Thursday the 9th of July between 12pm-2pm," management said in a statement.
"We ask anyone who has visited Frankie's Milperra since 12pm on Thursday the 9th of July to please go get tested if you are concerned or showing any symptoms."
The venue will be closed from today and will reopen once all staff have been tested for the virus and a deep clean is carried out.
Milperra is just outside the Liverpool local government area which Queensland recently declared a COVID-19 hotspot following the cluster at the Crossroads Hotel.
The Magpie Sports Club in nearby Croydon Park is expected to reopen today after it was closed for a deep clean.
The club was contacted by NSW Health yesterday after a patron who visited on Friday July 10, between 8pm and midnight, later tested positive for COVID-19.
"If you were at the club during this time and are deemed by NSW Health (after finalising their investigation) to be a close contact, they will be in touch by mobile or email," management said in a statement on Facebook.
"Should any staff be considered close contacts from that evening, they will be relieved of duty and will be required to self-isolate as per NSW Health guidelines."
Other affected venues include the Macarthur Tavern at Campbelltown, Milky Lane at Parramatta, West Leagues Club at Leumeah, Mancini's pizza at Belfield and the YMCA at Revesby.
