There was just 1 new case among the returned overseas travellers in hotel quarantine over the past 24 hours.
Restrictions in the neighbouring Central Coast region and Sydney and the mandatory wearing of masks in those areas remain in place but the Premier has signalled that those restrictions will be reviewed early next week if things continue to go well.
Australia's death toll remains at 909 with 56 in NSW and 820 in Victoria.
