  • There were 273 locally acquired cases of COVID-19 reported in NSW in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.Sadly, four people have died.
  • Thank you for continuing to come forward for testing – if you have any COVID-19 symptoms it is very important that you get tested, even if you are fully vaccinated.
  • Please help your loved ones to make a vaccination booking today
  • As students return to school, if they are vaccinated this provides another layer of protection. If your children is aged 12 or more, please think about getting them vaccinated.
  • People who do not have strong immune systems or are taking medicine that suppresses their immune systems may need a third dose of vaccine. Please speak to your doctor or pharmacist about what is right for you.
  • Please remain vigilant for symptoms wherever you are in the state. We are still seeing cases increase in regional areas such as Hunter New England, Lake Macquarie and Wollongong.
  • As NSW reopens, please make sure that you are familiar with the changing rules. These are all available on nsw.gov.au
