NEW South Wales Health authorities have recorded 17 new coronavirus cases after conducting 22,000 tests over the past 24 hours.
The latest infections are connected to the funerals cluster, overseas travellers in hotel quarantine and two Thai restaurants.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian urged residents to keep getting tested and if asked to self-isolate, to remain at home for the full two weeks.
“New South Wales given the circumstances, is holding the line and doing okay, but we are still on high alert,” Premier Berejiklian said.
“At the end of the day, it’s up to us to keep getting tested if we have the mildest symptoms,” she said.
“If we’re asked to stay home for 14 days, make sure its 14 days not 12, not 13, but the full two weeks, because this is critical in controlling the spread,” she said.
“We’re relying on everyone to do the right thing,” said the Premier.
