One new case was acquired overseas, in a returned traveller who is in a quarantine hotel. The other two new cases were locally acquired.

There were 4,276 people tested in the reporting period, compared with 6,809 people in the previous 24 hours.

Nearly 423,000 people have now been tested for COVID-19 in NSW.

NSW Health is once again urging anyone feeling unwell - even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat - to come forward and get tested, so cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible. Now is not the time to be complacent.
