Dr Queensland’s chief health officer, Jeannette Young, has named northern beaches a hotspot When asked about Cronulla, she didn’t rule out adding more areas in Sydney to the list if the virus continued to spread

The Northern Beaches Council issued advice early Friday that it had taken “strong measures” to protect the health of the community

An RSL club was previously cited as a potential source of the outbreak as health officials are trying to alert all visitors to the venue
