Four new cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 3,796.
There were 26,480 tests reported in the 24-hour reporting period, compared with 30,810 in the previous 24 hours.
Of the four new cases reported to 8pm last night:
As announced yesterday, one of today’s confirmed cases is a second security guard who worked at the Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel while it was operating for people in quarantine from overseas.
Contact tracing and investigations into the source of infection of the new case, including potential links to the previously reported case, are continuing. At this point there is no indication of additional risk to the community from the hotel.
There are currently 90 COVID-19 cases being treated by NSW Health. There are seven COVID 19 patients in intensive care and five are ventilated. 86 per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health are in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.
While case numbers have remained low this week, the virus continues to circulate in the community and vigilance must be maintained. It is vital that high rates of testing continue in order to find the source of the cases still under investigation and to identify and stop further spread of the virus.
People who attended the following venues at the times listed are considered to be casual contacts of a case and should monitor for symptoms, no matter how slight, and immediately isolate and get tested if they appear:

NSW Government - Latest new and updates.
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. 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.
