NSW has listed new potential exposure sites overnight. People who have been to the following are close contacts and must get tested and isolate for 14 days regardless of their test result.
A reminder that exposure sites listed by NSW Health are not places where confirmed transmission of Covid-19 has occurred, they are places where a Covid-19 positive person visited.
Additional mask rules have been announced for greater Sydney and for NSW overnight, with the NSW health minister, Brad Hazzard, amending the existing public health order.
From today, masks are now required in all indoor areas of construction sites throughout NSW.
