18 new COVID cases in NSW

1 month ago 13

There have been 18 new cases of coronavirus diagnosed in New South Wales up to 8pm on Tuesday night.

Of those, only one case is a returned traveller from overseas, and two are interstate infections from Victoria.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the state remained on “high alert” on Wednesday, and suggested politicians were prepared to get tougher on masks if uptake in crowded areas and on public transport didn’t rise in the near future.

“We know the rules we’ve put in place, the strong advice we’ve provided, works so long as it’s applied across the board,” she said.

“Whether it’s an extra-curricular school activity – which shouldn’t occur – whether it’s the recommendation for people to wear masks when they can’t guarantee social distancing and whether it’s the way we’ve asked businesses to approach a COVID safe environment – compliance is absolutely critical.”

Ms Berejiklian said early data from Service NSW showed there was an increase in business compliance, mask wearing and general awareness of health advice – but the increase needed to be larger.

“We need to see a greater uptake,” she said. “And if we don’t see a greater uptake in the next little while, we will consider further measures in which we can increase that uptake.”
