New South Wales has recorded three new cases of community transmission in the state as Mount Druitt Hospital readies itself to reopen.

The three cases were all able to be linked to the Berala cluster.

Another eight cases of COVID-19 were recorded in returned overseas travellers, all of whom are currently quarantining.

A fourth case of community transmission linked to Mount Druitt Hospital will be added to tomorrow’s numbers.

The hospital was forced to shut after someone who tested positive visited the Emergency Department.

It is understood to be reopening after a deep clean this morning.

In her daily press conference, Premier Gladys Berejiklian thanked people in New South Wales for adhering to the restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the virus.

“I also wanted to thank the community for meeting all the restrictions we’re putting in place, for wearing masks where we need to for being responsible every time you leave the home,” Ms Berejiklian said today.
