Three new COVID-19 cases in NSW

As at 8pm Sunday 7 June 2020, there have been three new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed since 8pm 6 June, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 3,112.

There were 5,950 tests carried out in the reporting period, compared with 9,207 in the previous 24 hours. More than 571,000 COVID‑19 tests have been carried out in NSW.

NSW Health would like to thank those with symptoms for coming forward, getting tested and ensuring cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible.

Two of the new cases today are travellers in hotel quarantine. The third case is under investigation.

There are currently 66 COVID-19 cases being treated by NSW Health, and none are in intensive care.

In NSW, 2,724 people have recovered from COVID-19.

The virus is likely to be still circulating in the community. People with mild symptoms or those who show no obvious symptoms can unknowingly pass it to others.

It remains essential that everyone maintains social distancing of 1.5m and regularly washes their hands to minimise the risk of virus transmission.

NSW Health is again urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat – to isolate from others and get tested.

It is vital that people continue to come forward for testing over the long weekend. COVID-19 testing clinics are open throughout NSW today, though there is reduced availability at some sites. Locations and opening hours are available here.
