NSW Health has expanded its warning for people who were at the Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport after two more cases of COVID-19 were linked to the quarantine hotel.

Anyone who worked or stayed on any floor of the hotel between January 27 and February 9 is now considered a close contact and must get tested and isolate for 14 days, the department said late on Tuesday.

Its previous advice only applied to people who had been on the third floor of the hotel.

The two new cases linked to the Holiday Inn were revealed by the Victorian government on Tuesday. They include a food and beverage worker and a returned traveller who’d been released into the community.

The total number of cases linked to the hotel is now three. At least one has the more infectious UK strain of the virus.

Meanwhile, NSW authorities are still trying to work out how a returned traveller from South America contracted the virus.

The traveller tested positive after being released from hotel quarantine in Sydney last week.

The person from the Wollongong area returned two negative tests during their 14-day quarantine period at the Sofitel Wentworth Hotel.

But they then returned a positive result after being contacted by NSW Health on day 16.

The person visited a number of venues in Wollongong and surrounding areas last week, as well as a cafe in Brighton Le Sands in southeast Sydney, before they were notified of the positive result on Saturday night.

NSW has recorded 23 consecutive days without a new locally-acquired COVID-19 case in the 24 hours to 8pm on Monday after 7315 tests were conducted.

Two cases were detected amongst returned travellers in hotel quarantine.
