No new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm last night

NSW Health report:

No new cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, with the total number of cases in NSW remaining at 4,029. This is the second day in a row that NSW has had no new cases, either locally acquired or in hotel quarantine. There were 6,353 tests reported in the 24-hour reporting period, compared with 12,333 in the previous 24 hours. NSW Health thanks the community for all they have done towards reducing COVID-19 numbers and continues to ask people to remain vigilant and come forward for testing immediately if symptoms like a runny nose, scratchy throat, cough or fever appear. This is particularly important with the start of school holidays and increased movement of people around the state. Locations linked to known cases, advice on testing and isolation, and areas identified for increased testing can be found here: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/latest-news-and-updates. NSW Health is treating 63 COVID-19 cases, including three in intensive care, none of whom are being ventilated. Eighty-seven per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health are in non-acute, out-of-hospital care. COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community and we must all be vigilant. To help stop the spread of COVID-19: - If you are unwell, get tested and isolate right away – don’t delay. - Wash your hands regularly. Take hand sanitiser with you when you go out. - Keep your distance. Leave 1.5 metres between yourself and others. - Wear a mask on public transport, ride share, taxis, shopping, places of worship and other places where you can’t physically distance. When taking taxis or rideshares, commuters should sit in the back and wear a mask. COVID-19 testing clinics can be found here: https://www.nsw.gov.au/.../how-to-protect.../clinics, or call your GP.
