NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says cases remain concentrated in the local government areas of Fairfield, Canterbury Bankstown and Liverpool in southwest Sydney.
New South Wales has recorded 112 new local COVID-19 cases with at least 34 in the community while infectious.
Authorities have also announced an extension to the vaccine rollout, with jabs to be made available to teachers and aged care workers in the areas of southwest Sydney most affected by the breakout. In addition, those over 40 will soon be able to access the AstraZeneca jab in vaccination hub and pharmacies.
Of those admitted to hospital, 25 are under the age of 55 and 14 are under the age of 35. Of the people in ICU, one is in their 20s, one in their 30s, one in their 40s, five in their 50s, six in their 60s, 3 in their 70s and one in their 80s.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said “the vast majority” of new cases were family members or “very, very close contacts” of known cases.
