All Sydneysiders are being urged to get tested if they have "the mildest" of coronavirus symptoms after NSW Health issued an alert for 20 more venues linked to the northern beaches cluster.

New venues in the northern beaches, western Sydney, eastern suburbs and Sutherland Shire are on red alert after NSW Health discovered on Friday afternoon they were visited by members of Sydney's growing COVID-19 cluster.

NSW Health has since issued an "urgent" alert calling for people across Sydney to get tested even if they have "the mildest symptoms" following the new links being discovered.

A statement from officials said the department was concerned about "wider transmission" and residents should watch closely for the slightest of signs.

"Due to increasing COVID-19 case numbers associated with the Avalon cluster and concerns over wider transmission, NSW Health is issuing an urgent call to all residents of NSW - not only those in the Northern Beaches - to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms," the statement on Friday afternoon said.

"Anyone in the state with even the mildest symptoms such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, is asked to come forward immediately for testing, then isolate until a negative result is received."
