Investigations are also continuing into the source of a COVID-19 case diagnosed in hotel quarantine, which has an identical viral sequence to two cases who were staying in an adjacent room at the Radisson Blu hotel.
Out of an abundance of caution, 22 returned travellers who were on the same floor of the Radisson Blu hotel between 1 June and 5 June and were subsequently discharged have been asked to get tested immediately and self-isolate pending further advice from NSW Health. These 22 travellers all returned negative results on Day 12 of their quarantine period.
NSW Health has also asked all staff who worked on the fourth floor between 1 June and 5 June to get tested immediately and isolate.
NSW Health is treating 37 COVID-19 cases, none of whom are in intensive care. Most cases (97 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
