The NSW Premier says Wollongong and Shellharbour will join Greater Sydney and wear masks at all indoor venues, as well as on public transport, for another week.

NSW Health says Masks are now mandatory on public transport in Greater Sydney and the Blue Mountains, and the Wollongong and Shellharbour local government areas. In addition, masks are now mandatory in all public indoor venues including retail, theatres, aged care facilities and masks are also mandatory for front of house hospitality staff.

NSW Health continues to remind people to avoid non-essential visits to aged care and disability facilities, but if visiting, wear a mask and limit visits to two people per day.

NSW recorded five locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, two of which were announced yesterday morning. NSW Health has also been notified of seven new locally acquired cases overnight. These cases will be included in tomorrow's numbers.
