Seven new cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 3,777.
There were 19,414 tests reported in the 24-hour reporting period, compared with 13,736 in the previous 24 hours.
Of the seven new cases reported to 8pm last night:
A case has been confirmed since the reporting period, in a patient who attended Liverpool Hospital. Close contacts have been identified and advised to isolate for 14 days, get tested for COVID-19 and monitor for symptoms. Deep cleaning has occurred in areas where the outpatient received care and additional precautionary measures have been taken. This includes COVID-19 testing for staff who worked on the same wards the patient received care when they were infectious. Links to other cases are being investigated.
If you have any cold or flu like symptoms at all, assume it’s COVID-19 until proven otherwise – isolate and get tested right away; don’t delay.
It is vital to maintain high rates of testing at this critical time, in order to find the source of these cases still under investigation. NSW Health is urging anyone with even the mildest of symptoms – including runny nose, sore throat, cough, or loss of taste and smell – to come forward for testing as the best way to protect their family, friends and wider community.
As has been reported previously, a case of COVID-19 worked at Flemington Markets while infectious. NSW Health is now advising that anyone who attended Flemington Markets at the following times should monitor for symptoms and self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19 if symptoms appear:

There are currently 115 COVID-19 cases being treated by NSW Health. There are eight COVID‑19 patients in intensive care and five are ventilated. 87 per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health are in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.
To help stop the spread of COVID-19:
A full list of COVID-19 testing clinics is available or people can visit their GP.
Anyone directed to undertake a 14-day self-isolation period must stay in isolation for the full 14 days, even if they test negative during this time. Early testing may not detect an infection, and release from self-isolation based on a negative test could allow an infectious person to infect others in the community. People who are infected and develop symptoms will generally do so within 14 days of exposure.
Counts reported for a particular day may vary over time with ongoing enhanced surveillance activities.
