The event was so severe that New South Wales Health issued a public health alert, asking anyone who attended the “On Repeat: Taylor Swift Red Party” at Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Friday, December 10 to “immediately get tested and isolate for 7 days.”
“It is likely some of these cases have the Omicron variant of concern,” they noted. They are also asking all household contacts of party attendees to get tested and self-isolate “until a negative test result is received by everyone in the household.”
They further warn that “Penalties for non-compliance with the isolation, testing and quarantine requirements have increased to $5,000 for individuals (from $1,000), and $10,000 for corporations (from $5,000).”
According to NBC News, the area is currently experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases, with a seven-day case average reaching over a thousand people on Thursday.
