The health department said that an establishment appearing on the exposure list does not necessarily mean that it did something wrong, nor does it mean that the establishment should be closed.
"The establishments have been contacted before their listing and guidance provided about reducing future risks to staff and customers," the health department said.
Anyone with questions can call 211.
