Contact tracing has reportedly been completed for all individuals who provided their information to the strip club upon entry.
All of the individuals and their close contacts have been advised to self-isolate for 14 days.
The agency says there is no reason to believe anyone who attended the strip club when the worker was not present would have been exposed to the virus.
