New South Wales has continued its COVID-19 free streak, recording zero cases for the tenth day in a row.
Four people in hotel quarantine tested positive, as 8588 tests were reported to 8pm on Monday night, up from 7034 the day prior.
Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Jeremy McAnulty said NSW Health is treating 61 people with COVID-19, and none are in intensive care. At least 93 per cent of cases are being treated by NSW Health in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.
It comes as NSW Health races to contact people who have recently arrived on flights from South Australia following the Parafield outbreak.
Health advice is being offered to those who have recently arrived from Adelaide, and passengers arriving on flights and buses are being screened.
“All people travelling from South Australia, particularly Adelaide, to NSW including recent arrivals are asked to monitor for even the mildest of symptoms and get tested and isolate if they appear,” Dr McAnulty said.
“They must remain in isolation until a negative result is received.”
