A Covid-19 pop-up testing clinic has been established in Oran Park as new cases continue to crop up around Sydney.

NSW Health has set up a testing clinic at the Julia Reserve Community Centre on Peter Brock Drive - across from Oran Park Podium - which will be operating between 8am and 6pm until Sunday, October 18.

The pop-up clinic comes after NSW Health revealed a slew of new locations visited by positive cases while in their infectious periods.

Anyone who attended these locations at the specified times is considered a casual contact. They must monitor their health for symptoms of the virus - like a scratchy throat, fever or cough - and get tested immediately if they appear. They must isolate until a negative test result is received.

The new Macarthur locations are:

Woolworths Oran Park, September 30, 5.30pm-6.30pm; October 8, 5.15pm-6pm; and October 9, 6pm-6.30pm

Prasadi Nepali Emerald Hills, October 2, 3.30pm-4pm

McDonald's Emerald Hills, October 2, 5pm-5.15pm

Aldi Emerald Hills, October 2, 5.30pm-6.15pm

Fantastic Furniture Campbelltown, October 9, 3,30pm-5.20pm

Bunnings Gregory Hills, October 6, 7pm-8pm

NSW is concerned that testing numbers have recently dropped, and is encouraging everyone in the south-west to come forward for testing right away if they experience even the mildest of symptoms, like a runny nose, cough or more.
