From Checkpoint, 5:11 pm on 20 August 2020

It has been revealed the maintenance worker at the Rydges Hotel isolation facility who contracted Covid 19 used a lift just minutes after a guest who later tested positive for the same strain.

However, health officials are still unable to confirm whether a third strain of the virus may be circulating in the community, with one other person yet to be linked to the main cluster.
