* NSW recorded 97 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night. At least 29 cases were infectious in the community. This is too high.

*The greatest number of transmissions are in homes and workplaces.

*If one of your friends or family has been recently found to have COVID-19, please get tested immediately, and get tested again if you develop any symptoms.

*Please only leave you home if it is absolutely essential.

*Any time that you leave the house, you should take a mask. Masks should always be worn indoors. You should wear masks outside when you can’t socially distance.

*Only one person from your home should go shopping, and only for essential shopping for as short a time as possible.

*Please do not delay getting a test. If you wait to have a test for 2 to 3 days you could have already infected your family and friends.

*Don’t go to the doctor or pharmacy unless you have to. If you are sick, call the doctor first, and send someone who is well to get medicines.

*Some people that have COVID-19 have lots of symptoms and other people have no symptoms. This means you could pass it on without knowing it. The only way you know that you don’t have COVID-19 is if you get tested.

*You can give COVID-19 to others before you have any symptoms.

*Young people sometimes need to be admitted to hospital with COVID-19
