New South Wales recorded just eight new coronavirus cases on Friday, as a Sydney gym and school are closed over fears of close contact with an infected person.

One case is a returned traveller in hotel quarantine and the other seven locally acquired cases have been linked to a known source. 

The coronavirus cluster in Sydney's CBD grew once again as three of the new cases were linked to the outbreak. 

Bunnings and Aldi have also been put on high alert after an infectious customer visited the two stores.
