A school in southwest Sydney has been closed after a year 7 student tested positive for COVID-19, as supermarkets restore purchasing restrictions in an attempt to ward off a resurgence of panic buying.
A testing clinic has been set up at Camden Hospital and NSW Health has urged anyone linked to Camden High School who has been unwell or has flu-like symptoms to get tested.
"The school will continue to support students with at-home learning arrangements while the school site is non-operational," the NSW Department of Education said in a statement on Friday.
The infected student is believed to have attended school all week.
The case is one of six reported across NSW on Friday from more than 15,000 tests. The other five are returned travellers in hotel quarantine.
Camden High's closure comes after Lane Cove West Public School was closed for deep cleaning on Thursday following news a seven-year-old had developed symptoms on Saturday. However, the child reportedly had not attended school during the week.
Supermarket giants Woolworths and Coles reintroduced nationwide toilet paper and paper towel purchase limits after the COVID-19 surge in Victoria sparked hoarding.
NSW customers will be permitted just two packs of toilet paper and paper towels.
"While the demand is not at the same level as Victoria, we're taking preventative action now to get ahead of any excessive buying this weekend and help maintain social distancing in our stores," Woolworths managing director Claire Peters said in a statement on Friday.
Ms Peters also said Woolworths had bought more toilet paper in anticipation of increased demand and reminded Australian shoppers that supply was plentiful.
Rival Coles also enacted similar nationwide product limits, including one pack per shopper of toilet paper and paper towels, and two packs of flour, sugar, pasta and rice.
