  • Please make sure you know the restrictions in your area https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules
  • No matter where you live in the state, it remains vital that people continue to monitor for symptoms and present for testing. The sooner we identify cases, the sooner we can control outbreaks. There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW.
  • Areas with the highest cases are Guildford, Wellington, Auburn, Merrylands, Wollongong, Blacktown, Liverpool, Greenacre, Bankstown and Narromine.
  • We remain concerned about areas with positive sewage detection. We encourage people in Hastings Point, Ballina, Quirindi, Armidale and Tamworth to be vigilant for symptoms and come forward for testing.
  • Please remember that vaccination is our way out of this and the best way we can protect ourselves, our families and our friends.
