NSW recorded no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.

One new case was acquired overseas, bringing the total number of cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic to 4,961. There were 12,175 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day’s total of 13,586.

While today marks 36 days with no reported locally acquired cases in NSW, there is still a risk of COVID-19 spreading into the community given that new cases are regularly detected among overseas arrivals. It is critical that everyone continues to come forward for testing if they have even the mildest of symptoms.

Three vaccination hubs became operational this morning at Liverpool, Royal Prince Alfred and Westmead hospitals. In the first three weeks, 35,100 frontline workers will receive their first vaccination, followed by a second vaccination three weeks later.
