Due to the concerted effort of all residents, NSW has successfully supressed COVID-19 to very low levels.

However, Victoria is seeing increased COVID-19 activity within some areas of Melbourne. These areas are being closely monitored and interventions to prevent further transmissions from these areas are being implemented by the Victorian Government. More information is available on the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services website

Non-essential travel between Melbourne and New South Wales is discouraged. In addition, restrictions on workers and visitors who have been in Melbourne in the previous 14 days to high risk settings have been implemented. Further restrictions may be implemented as the situation evolves. 

 NSW Health will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide regular updates to keep the public informed.  

There are currently 56 COVID-19 cases being treated by NSW Health, with none in intensive care. In NSW, 2,784 people are known to have recovered from COVID-19.

Since 29 March 2020, 3,450 symptomatic returned travellers have been tested in hotels, with 109 of those (3 per cent) found positive. Travellers are also screened on day 10 of quarantine. Since this screening began on 15 May 2020, 12,534 returned travellers have been screened on day 10 of quarantine with 67 found positive.

NSW Health is urging anyone feeling unwell– with even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat – to isolate from others and to seek testing via their GP or by visiting one of the COVID-19 testing clinics. ​ A full list of COVID-19 testing clinics is available at COVID-19 Clinics.​

To minimise the risk of spreading the virus, it is essential all people follow directions they receive about home isolation and quarantine. Everyone should continue to maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres and regularly wash their hands.
