If symptoms including headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, fever, loss of smell or taste appear, people must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
There are more than 500 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW.
The total number of cases in SNSWLHD since the start of the current outbreak in June is now 491.
It is important that everyone aged 12 years and over continues to come forward for the COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be safe, effective and life-saving.
NSW Health state-run clinics are now also offering a booster dose, using the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, to individuals aged 18 and over. This booster shot will help people maintain a high level of protection against the COVID-19 virus, including the Delta variant.
People aged 18 years and older may receive a booster at least six months after receiving their second dose of any of the COVID-19 vaccines registered for use in Australia.
First, second and booster vaccinations can all be booked through the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder.
