Confirmed COVID-19 cases are associated with these locations and have been classified by NSW Health for action.

This information will be updated if further locations are identified. Locations are removed when 14 days have passed since the last known date that a confirmed case was associated with the location. Learn more about symptoms and who should get tested.

It is important for the ongoing control of COVID-19 in NSW that anyone in the state who has any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, continues to get tested immediately and self-isolate until a negative test result is received.

We thank those who are self-isolating. We appreciate it is difficult if you or your loved one has been identified as a close contact to a confirmed case of COVID-19. However, you must continue to self-isolate for 14 days since exposure, even if you receive a negative test result. Thank you for keeping the community safe.
