VideoA hotel quarantine security guard at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Perth has tested positive to COVID-19 but Premier Mark McGowan says he won't call a lockdown yet.

Seven new sites across Perth have been added to the WA Health Department’s exposure list after case 1001, a Pan Pacific hotel quarantine security guard, tested positive on Friday.

People who have attended the sites at the time of the confirmed case are required to attend a WA COVID clinic for testing and isolate at home until a negative result is resulted.

The first possible transmission point for the security guard has been listed as Swan Taxi on Harvey Street in Victoria Park on April 27 between 1.50pm and 2.45pm.

The following day he visited Spudshed at Stirling Central Shopping Centre in Westminter between 1.30am and 2.30am, Balcatta’s Northlands Fresh and Smokemart at the Prime West Northlands Shopping Centre between 1.30pm and 3.15pm and Joondanna’s Agha Juice café between 6.50pm and 8pm.

On Thursday he visited Balcatta Coles, again in the Prime West Northlands Shopping Centre, between 4.30pm and 5.15pm and yesterday he attended Mirrabooka Mosque Masjid Al Taqwa between 1.15pm and 2pm.

WA Premier Mark McGowan today revealed the man, aged in his 20s, is believed to have been infected by two return travellers who arrived at the inner-city hotel on Saturday, April 24.

Medical experts believe he became infectious on Tuesday, April 27 and developed symptoms on Thursday, April 29 but initially thought it was after affects from receiving his first does of the Pfizer vaccine a week prior.

The guard had been working at the hotel on April 17, 18, 24, 25 and 26.

People who have attended the exposure sites at the same time and have not yet been contacted by Public Health Operations are urged to call 13 COVID (13 26843).
