NSW Health urges everyone around the state to continue to take practical measures to stay COVID-safe. This includes always using QR codes to check in to venues, practising good hand hygiene, and staying home and getting tested for COVID‑19 if unwell.
It is important that we maintain high rates of COVID-19 testing, as this is the best way of finding undetected cases in the community and preventing further transmission. NSW Health thanks everyone who has come forward for testing, and urges anyone with even the mildest of symptoms isolate and be tested immediately, and remain in isolation until a negative result is received.
There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic, visit
COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.
NSW Health is treating 112 COVID-19 cases, one of whom is in intensive care and on ECMO. Most (98 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
