Manly Corso Coles in potential FOUR day COVID exposure

A Coles Local Manly Corso staff member has tested positive to COVID-19, forcing temporary closure of the popular supermarket for a deep clean.

UPDATED:  Coles in Manly now has four days of potential exposure at its store on the Corso, these are:


Monday 23 August 7am-3.30pm
Tuesday 24 August 7am – 3pm
Wednesday 25 August 12pm-5pm
Thursday 26 August 7am and 12pm

Our understanding is the other store on Wentworth Street, Manly, is unaffected.

NSW Health is no longer listing many venues of concern.

If you were present at the store during those days it would be advisable to get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.  There is a walk in testing centre at the Beach side of Royal Far West and a drive through with same day results at Warringah Aquatic. NSW Health usually advises casual contacts to test again after five days post potential exposure and to limit contact with others until after that second test is received.
