¿ COVID UPDATE - Monday May 17
¿ Firstly, there hasn't been any reported case of community transmission in NSW since the somewhat random (and now isolated) case appeared in Sydney's east almost two weeks ago.
¿ Restrictions in Sydney and on the Central Coast have been lifted today. Masks are no longer compulsory on public transport.
¿ It's now been 284 days since we had a case of community transmission in the Hunter-New England Health District.
¿ As you can see below, the number of people vaccinated in NSW is nearing the million mark. 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 91 active cases, Victoria has 23, QLD has 13, WA has 7, SA has 14 and the NT has 6. TAS and the ACT have zero. (Note: all but five in those totals are returned overseas travellers in quarantine).
¿ Australia's death toll remains at 910, with 56 of those in NSW.
