WA COVID exhibition sites: IKEA and Forrest Chase Night markets on new Ministry of Health alert list

A dozen new COVID-19 exposure sites have been added to Healthy WA’s inflated list – including the busy Innaloo IKEA and a Booragoon gymnasium.

The new health advisory was released as the state anxiously awaits today’s COVID-19 case numbers.

Health authorities have urged people who visited the Body Transformation Studio in Booragooon between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday January 17 to get tested immediately and self-isolate for 14 days from that date.

People who visited IKEA between 7 and 9 p.m. on Friday, January 14 should watch for symptoms, as should people who attended the Forrest Chase Night Market between 6 and 8 p.m. the same day.

Other new locations include a BWS in Spearwood, Willagee Liquor Store, Marmion St Fresh & Gourmet, Shell Coles Express Armadale and Bailey Nelson Optometrist on St George’s Terrace.

On Thursday, WA recorded five new cases, including a mystery case that authorities are still trying to trace to the source.

The case has no known connection to the Cockburn cluster piloted by Omicron or the Delta cluster associated with a French backpacker.

The other four local cases were contacts of previously reported cases, two of whom were in quarantine and two potentially infectious in the community.
