Health authorities in Perth have identified 76 fresh venues, including a McDonald's and a KFC, that may have been exposed to coronavirus after two infected delivery drivers handed food to over 100 fast-food customers. 

The new locations were listed on Monday as Western Australia recorded no new local Covid cases and as authorities continued to track down residents who came into contact with a hotel quarantine security guard and two of his housemates. 

The trio tested positive on Saturday, prompting the government to reinstate mandatory mask-wearing both indoors and outdoors, close nightclubs and prevent fans from attending Sunday's AFL western derby at Optus Stadium.

The two infected housemates each worked as delivery drivers and gave food to more than 100 people. 

'The list relates to venues where food delivery drivers, of which two of the positive cases are, picked up and dropped off food,' Premier Mark McGowan said on Monday.

The 100 people are considered casual contacts and are being contacted and advised to get tested.

But health advice suggested the risk of transmission was very low given the drivers were required to wear face masks and had minimal contact with customers.

The delivery drivers picked up food at nine different McDonald's restaurants across Perth, as well as five KFC stores. 

Popular fast food franchises including Hungry Jack's, Nando's, Subway and Grill'd have also been added to the list of public exposure sites. 

'The Department of Health is contacting all confirmed cases to identify and inform close contacts,' Healthy WA said on their website.

­­­­­

'The following sites were briefly visited by persons who have been diagnosed with Covid–19, the risk is deemed to be very low.

'If you develop Covid-19 symptoms within 14 days of being at one of the locations below at the dates and times indicated you are advised to get a COVID test and isolate until you get the results.

'If you do not experience any symptoms, there is no action other than to monitor for symptoms.'

Mr McGowan on Monday said WA Health had so far identified 58 close contacts and 26 had tested negative.

Seventeen of the close contacts went to cooking classes on April 27 and 28 at the Perth College of Business and Technology which was also attended by one of the housemates.

All close contacts are required to quarantine for 14 days.  

Mr McGowan and Health Minister Roger Cook on Monday each received their first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

They are part of the over-50s cohort who are now eligible to receive their jabs at one of several mass vaccination clinics across Perth.

Over-50s can get vaccinated by their GPs from May 17.

The guard in his 20s worked at the Pan Pacific Hotel between April 24 and 26 and tested positive on Saturday.

He and his seven housemates have been moved to hotel quarantine.

On his days off work from April 27 to 30, he moved through the community going shopping, seeing friends and visiting Mirrabooka Mosque.

Restrictions had been in place in Perth and Peel following a snap three-day lockdown.

'Had what happened in the last couple of days occurred three weeks ago, we would have gone into lockdown immediately,' Mr McGowan said.

Authorities believe the guard likely contracted the virus from a returned traveller from the United States who was in quarantine at the Pan Pacific.

Genomic testing has indicated the pair have the same US variant of the virus.

Mr McGowan said he had been advised the outbreak was not related to ventilation issues which had been detected in several other quarantine hotels.
