There were 13,460 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day's total of 20,061. NSW Health thanks the community, particularly those in northern NSW, for coming forward in large numbers for testing, as this is critical to detect and stop transmission of the virus.

A complete list of venues of concern in NSW and the associated public health advice is available at Latest news and updates. Please check this page regularly, as advice is updated as further information becomes available.

Anyone throughout the state who has even the mildest of cold-like symptoms should get tested immediately and isolate until they receive a negative result.
