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 4,232.
There were 13,134 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with 12,785 in the previous 24 hours.
Of the new cases to 8pm last night:
The local case from south west Sydney attended the Flip Out Prestons Indoor Trampoline Park at Prestons at the same time as a known case and is linked to the new Hoxton Park cluster, which now numbers five.
This case was publicly reported on Friday 30 October but is included in today's official numbers. Contact tracing and investigations are underway.
This case attends Cabramatta High School which will be non-operational over the weekend as it is thoroughly cleaned. The school is working closely with NSW Health to identify close contacts.
NSW Health is treating 73 COVID-19 cases, with one patient in intensive care, who is being ventilated. Ninety-two per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health are in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.
NSW Health is calling on people to remain vigilant in the fight against COVID-19 and to continue to work together to minimise community transmission as the risk of a resurgence of cases remains very real.
It is critical people continue to come forward for testing when they experience even the mildest symptoms, such as a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, or fever, which could signal a COVID-19 infection.
NSW Health is particularly calling on the people of south west Sydney, where there have been a number of recent cases in the community, to come forward for testing. When we have high numbers of people continuing to get tested, that allows us to detect cases in the community earlier and prevent onward transmission.
NSW Health has been able to get the recent clusters in south west Sydney under control with the support of the community, but their emergence shows that the risk of a resurgence of cases in NSW remains very real if we don't continue to practise COVID-safe behaviours and get tested immediately when symptoms appear. Most people receive their test results within 24 hours.
