North Albury electrical equipment supplier Summit Power been added to a list of COVID-19 exposure sites in the Border city.
The listing of the store on Fallon Street comes after Lavington's Reece Plumbing Centre on Dallinger Road was also deemed an exposure site.
Anyone who visited the businesses between 11.22am and 2.28pm on Monday, September 13, is urged to come forward and get tested after the announcement of two positive COVID cases in Albury on Wednesday.
Murrumbidgee Local Health District confirmed on Thursday that both cases are now being cared for and are isolating in Albury.
Summit Power manager Roger Hocking said the business was closed on Tuesday and Wednesday with all staff at the site on Monday sent for testing.
"We had an alert from one of our suppliers that a potential COVID case had made a delivery to our business, so we had to take appropriate action in that regard.
"There's been further communication to say reports will be clarified as quickly as possible.
"We subsequently received an email from the company saying no delivery was actually made in NSW, so we're still seeking clarification at this point.
"Our staff have been straight to testing and have all returned negative, but we're still off work and waiting for further clarification.
"We've been able to open up (on Thursday) with one or two staff only with people who weren't at the business at the time of the exposure."
MLHD Director Public Health Tracey Oakman said it and Albury-Wodonga Health are working together and will provide further information regarding any sites of concern or community risk if it is identified.
"We would encourage people to stay up-to-date with the latest information as it is provided through both MLHD and AWH social media, website and media outlets," she said.
"This is a reminder that the threat of COVID-19 is very real, and it is important people remain vigilant and continue to follow the public health advice around hand hygiene, wearing masks and physical distancing."
AWH Executive Director of Public Health Unit Lucy Shanahan added reminded residents that testing sites are available both sides of the border and ask anyone experiencing symptoms to come forward.
