The man who delivered a positive test on Monday had visited several households in the state before moving on to South Australia on July 9 and finally returning to New South Wales on the 10th.
Health Minister Martin Foley said they are still conducting interviews to follow the chain of contact.
"As part of that interview we will be looking to fill in the gaps as soon as possible. But we would expect there would be exposure site and people to quarantine"
