New refers to new cases and tests in the 24 hours from 8pm 21 Sep to 8pm 22 Sep, 2020.

The total NSW case count excludes 189 crew members who tested positive while on board a ship docked in NSW at the time of diagnosis. NSW Health reports on the number of tests notified instead of the number of people tested. In total, 2,045,220 people have been tested in NSW. Find out more about how NSW counts tests.

Local COVID-19 transmission in the last four weeks

The map shows the location of residence by Local Government Area (LGA) or local health district (LHD) of locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the last four weeks up to 8pm 22 Sep 2020. It is based on the date the person first developed symptoms. When no date of symptom onset is available (it is either under investigation by public health staff or the person tested positive without showing symptoms), the date of the positive test is used. Infections are not always acquired in the place of residence as people often travel outside their area for many reasons (e.g. work, school and shopping).

You can also view the number of cases with an unknown source of infection, the number of tests done in the last four weeks and the rate of testing.

Cases without a NSW residential address and people who were exposed interstate or overseas are not shown. Case counts may vary over time due to ongoing investigations and case review.

Data can be viewed by LGA or LHD boundaries by using the relevant buttons to toggle the map view.
