(ABC News: Brendan Esposito, file photo) Yesterday, NSW chief medical officer Kerry Chant confirmed the Tangara School for Girls outbreak had grown to 19.

The source of the cluster at the Cherrybrook school remains under investigation, but health authorities are probing a retreat organised by the nearby Eremeran Hills Study Centre.

On Wednesday, a spokesperson for the school rejected any responsibility for the retreat.

"Eremeran is a third-party provider of after school care, a homework centre and other activities and retreats for the community," the spokesperson said.

"Bookings are undertaken directly with the organisation and the school plays no role in organising or monitoring attendees."

The spokesperson said the school had not organised extracurricular school activities and camps since March.

Eremeran said five girls from years 10 and 11 had attended a retreat at a venue in Bargo, 100 kilometres south-west of Sydney.

The centre is now closed but none of its staff have tested positive.

"We are continuing to assist NSW Health in their endeavours to ascertain whether the retreat may have contributed to the outbreak," the centre said in a statement.

Two people infected with COVID-19 and linked to the Tangara outbreak also visited the Wildginger restaurant in Huskisson on the South Coast on Saturday, August 8, from 7:45pm to 10:30pm.

The restaurant is now closed.

Patrons and staff who were there at the same time must isolate for 14 days and get tested, the local health authority said.

There are 3,738 coronavirus cases in NSW, with 135 being treated by NSW Health, including seven people in intensive care.

NSW Health said 1.75 million tests had been conducted since the pandemic began — 24,621 in the past 24 hours.
