Earlier on Tuesday, the same advice was given to anyone who visited Oxford Tce’s popular Riverside Market between 4:29 p.m. and 5 p.m. last Wednesday.
The advice was also addressed to those who visited the Rollickin Gelato Cafe on Cashel St on the same day between 5:00 p.m. and 5:05 p.m., or the Ballantynes department store on Cashel St between 4:11 p.m. and 4:31 p.m.

The Department of Health has advised anyone who has developed symptoms to stay home until a negative test result is returned.
The two new cases of Covid-19 were notified after the daily cut-off time and were not included in the total number of cases reported by the Department of Health on Tuesday.
Canterbury’s two new cases were in the South Canterbury Board of Health and Canterbury District areas.
There were just 14 new community cases of Covid-19 across the country on Tuesday – the lowest number of daily cases reported since September 28.
There were also nine new cases at the border and 34 people hospitalized with the virus.
The South Canterbury case was under investigation but shared a place of interest with a previously reported case, the ministry said.
The Canterbury case also remained under investigation for any connection to previously reported cases.
The other new community cases on Tuesday were in Northland, Auckland, Waikato and Wellington.
