NEWCASTLE Courthouse and a Merewether petrol station have joined almost a dozen fresh COVID-19 exposure sites declared overnight in the Hunter.
All venues were casual contact exposures, meaning anyone who attended should seek testing and isolate until they receive a negative result.
NSW Health said it would reach out to any close contacts directly.
The courthouse's main entry area on the ground floor, its second level and court room 2.1 were exposure sites between 9.30am and noon on Friday, Hunter New England Health has warned.
