New refers to new cases and tests in the 24 hours from 8pm 01 Dec to 8pm 02 Dec, 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, 2,497,541 people have been tested in NSW.

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 02 Dec 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.
