The Star casino in Sydney has been hit by coronavirus as it spreads around New South Wales.
A gambler who was at the venue on Saturday 4 July from 7.30pm to 10.30pm has tested positive for the deadly disease.
The casino is now working with health officials to trace any contacts including staff members and other gamblers.
It has not been ordered to close.
‘The Star is working closely with NSW Health to respond to this information, including the conduct of contact tracing which includes staff members,’ the company said in a statement to the ASX.
The casino re-opened on 1 June after lockdown but closes daily from 6am to 10am for a deep clean.
