The Murrumbidgee Local Health District has released new venues of concern in the Riverina after several sites were visited by a positive case of COVID-19.
A person from outside the district, who was working in Temora, visited locations in Temora and Beckom while potentially infectious on August 16 and 17.
The person was asymptomatic and is an essential worker who undergoes regular routine testing. They are now isolating outside of the Murrumbidgee Local Health District.
Contact tracing has since identified three venues in Temora and Beckom.
Anyone who attended any of the venues listed on the specified dates and times are casual contacts and must get tested and isolate until a negative test result is received:
The MLHD said venues are currently being assessed by the Public Health Unit to ensure accurate assessment of risk for staff, and to determine if any had close contact with the case.

"SMS messages will be sent to people who checked in with the QR code," a statement said.
"MLHD is also urging anyone in Temora or Beckom, or who has been in Temora or Beckom recently, to get tested if they have even the slightest of symptoms and isolate until they receive a negative result."
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, sore throat and dry cough.
Symptoms will generally appear three to four days after exposure to the virus but can be up to 14 days later.
Testing is available today in Wagga and MLHD will deploy mobile testing facilities on Wednesday. Times and locations for mobile testing will be announced later today.

The news comes a few days after the MLHD announced that it had recorded its first brush with this outbreak when someone from the Lachlan Shire tested positive.
That case, which visited several sites in the health district at Hillston and Lake Cargelligo, falls under a neighbouring jurisdiction, the authority confirmed on Monday.
The Murrumbidgee health district has not had a locally-acquired coronavirus case for more than a year.
