NSW recorded no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
Nine cases were reported in overseas travellers. This brings the total number of cases in NSW since the start of the pandemic to 4,444.
NSW Health is treating 80 COVID-19 cases, none of whom are in intensive care. Most cases (96 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
There were 11,622 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with 14,508 in the previous 24 hours.
People in the Batemans Bay area are being urged to come forward for testing if they have any symptoms after fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 were detected at the sewage treatment plant.
The presence of SARS-CoV-2 in sewage may reflect the presence of people who have recovered from COVID-19 such as people released from hotel isolation returning to their place of residence.
However, NSW Health is concerned there could be other active cases in the local community in people who have not been tested and who might incorrectly assume their symptoms are just a cold.
NSW Health also continues to urge people in south-western Sydney to get tested if they have any symptoms after fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19 were detected at the Liverpool sewage treatment plant.
While testing numbers have increased during the week, there are still too few people coming forward for testing. With restrictions eased and borders having reopened, now is not the time to be complacent.
Please come forward for testing immediately even with mild symptoms. Don't wait to see if your runny nose or sore throat goes away.
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.
