|Confirmed cases (incl. interstate residents in NSW health care facilities)||3,110|
|Deaths (in NSW from confirmed cases)||50|
|Cases reported recovered||2,714|
|Total tests carried out||543,205|
The four new cases today are all travellers in hotel quarantine.
There are currently 71 COVID-19 cases being treated by NSW Health. As noted, there are no people being treated in an intensive care unit.
In NSW, 2,714 people have recovered from COVID-19.
While there have only been four new cases recorded in the past 24 hours, the virus is likely circulating among people in the community with mild symptoms. As such, the risk of outbreaks and a resurgence of cases remains.
NSW Health is again urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat – to come forward and get tested, so cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible.
During the long weekend, it remains essential that everyone maintains social distancing of 1.5 metres and regularly washes their hands to minimise the risk of virus transmission between people. People who may show no obvious symptoms or have very mild symptoms can unknowingly pass it to others if they are incubating the infection.
