4 new cases in managed isolation, close eye on Sydney

There are no new cases of Covid-19 in the community today, the Ministry of Health reported in a statement.

Compulsory mask wearing has also been extended from the Greater Sydney area to now include everyone in the Wollongong and Shellharbour local government areas, in light of several recent new cases having been detected there.

On Saturday, the Ministry of Health updated its advice and asked anyone in New Zealand who were at locations of interest in Sydney to make contact, get tested, and to stay at home until they receive a negative Covid-19 test.

Meanwhile, quarantine free travel is set to continue with New South Wales.
