NSW has recorded six new local COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, three linked to the Avalon cluster and three more reported after 8pm on Monday, including a mystery case from Wollongong.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the three overnight cases, including the mystery case from Wollongong, were unlinked to the northern beaches at this stage. The other two cases hailed from Sydney’s northern region and the inner west.
“The threat in Greater Sydney is almost becoming as equal to [southern] parts of the northern beaches and that’s where we’ll be adjusting potentially some of our restrictions,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Until those links are established, all of us in greater Sydney have to be on high alert.”
