Key points from NSW Health on COVID-19 for 24 August 2021

  • NSW recorded 753 locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
  • Thank you to everyone who has come forward to be vaccinated. We have now reached 6 million vaccinations ahead of schedule! This is a fantastic milestone. If you haven’t had yours yet, please book in urgently at nsw.gov.au
  • Western Sydney and Southwest Sydney still have the most cases. Suburbs of most concern are Auburn, Merrylands, Yagoona, Guildford, Bankstown, Punchbowl, Blacktown and the surrounding suburbs. Make sure you know the lockdown rules in your area and assume that you will come into contact with the virus every time you leave your home.
  • If you are aged 16-39 and live in one of the suburbs of concern, you are being prioritised. VisitPriority COVID-19 vaccination booking for 16 to 39 year-olds | NSW Government to book yours.
  • The vaccines are highly effective. If you have received your first dose of AstraZeneca, discuss bringing your second dose forward. If you have an elderly loved one, please assist them to get a vaccine.
  • There were over 138,000 tests yesterday. Please continue to come forward for testing if you have even mild symptoms or are a contact of a case. If you get tested and can’t work you may be eligible for the Test and Isolate Support Payment.
  • We understand that everyone is tired of the lockdown, but we need to keep going. Together we will get through this.
