There was also 8 new cases among the returned overseas travellers in hotel quarantine over the past 24 hours.
Australia's death toll remains at 909 with 56 in NSW and 820 in Victoria.
The number of active cases in NSW continues to fall and is down to 113. Victoria has 33, there are 25 in QLD, 14 in WA, 11 in SA and 9 in the NT. Tasmania and the ACT have zero.
Please continue to stay safe, vigilant, maintain the social distancing, and wear a mask if you have to visit places where social distancing is difficult.
Don't forget, if you have any symptoms, however minor, please self-isolate and get tested immediately.
