NSW health authorities hope a coronavirus cluster in southwest Sydney’s Oran Park is coming under control after just one new case was uncovered.
NSW recorded five new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm on Saturday, with four in returned travellers in hotel quarantine.
NSW Health said in a statement on Sunday the locally-acquired infection was connected to Great Beginnings childcare in Oran Park. The suburb-wide COVID-19 cluster now numbers 19.
All staff and children who attended the creche between October 2 and Tuesday have been told to get tested and self-isolate for a fortnight, and the facility will remain closed until at least October 28.
Those who attended the Gregory Hills Hotel in Gregory Hills, The 1500 United Cinema in Narellan, Shellharbour South Beach and Little Park and Woolworths Oran Park at various times between October 9 and October 12 are considered casual contacts.
Alerts are on the NSW Health website for four bus routes to or from Oran Park, Campbelltown and Bradbury on October 14.
The weekend ushered in eased restrictions for NSW outdoor venues, with up to 500 people allowed to attend open-air concerts so long as they stay seated and four metres apart.
Limits on outdoor dining were also relaxed, allowing one patron per two square metres, with venues obliged to use an electronic QR code to record contact details.
