COVID UPDATE - Monday May 10
The good news is that the case reported in Sydney last week has still only spread to one household contact. The bad news is that NSW Health still has no idea where or how the transmission occurred, suggesting it might have come from an undetected case in the community.
Please remember that if you're travelling to the Central Coast, Sydney, Wollongong or the Blue Mountains, some minor restrictions apply - including home visitor limits, masks on public transport, no singing or dancing in indoor venues - until 12.01am next Monday, May 17. These restrictions do not apply to Lake Macquarie.
It's now been 277 days since we had a case of community transmission in the Hunter-New England Health District.
Also, just a reminder that anyone aged 50 or above is now eligible for a vaccine. Check with you local GP for a time and date, but if your GP is not administering the vaccine, you can find other places here
NSW currently has 120 active cases, QLD has 18, Victoria has 23, WA has 20, SA has 26 and the NT has 11. TAS and the ACT have zero. (Note: all are returned overseas travellers in quarantine except for the two cases of community transmission in NSW).
Australia's death toll remains at 910, with 56 of those in NSW.
