Premier Gladys Berejiklian announces only 8 new cases cropped up overnight, 7 which are linked to the Avalon cluster and 1 under investigation.
The outlier case surrounds a quarantine healthcare worker who worked closely with and at the airport.
Gladys extends a huge thanks to not only the workers who managed to process over 44, 000 tests in the last 24 hours but to all those who decide to get tested.
The Premier warns us that although the number of cases are low, the more people that test positive means the more public venues could become transmission zones.
With a focus on venues outside the Northern Beaches:
If you have been at the following venue around the time and date stated, get tested and self isolate until you receive your result.
