NSW has reported one new case of locally transmitted COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
Three cases were reported in overseas travellers in hotel quarantine, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 4,197.
There were 7,447 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with 12,465 in the previous 24 hours.
While it is not unusual for weekend testing numbers to be lower, if we are to ensure NSW continues to detect cases as soon as possible and prevent onward transmission, it is vital that members of the community continue to come forward for testing.
NSW Health continues to appeal to the community to be tested right away if anyone has even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could signal COVID-19.
Of the four new cases to 8pm last night:
The one new locally acquired case is a household contact of a previously reported case linked to the Oran Park community cluster. They have been in isolation. There are now 23 cases linked to this cluster.
NSW Health is treating 80 COVID-19 cases, with no patients in intensive care. Ninety 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:
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.
Note: Case counts reported for a particular day may vary over time due to ongoing investigations and case review.
