26 thousand people got tested overnight with 8 new cases tallied.

4 of these cases were acquired overseas and are now in isolation, however, 4 were locally acquired.

3 of these locally acquired cases are connected to the Berala BWS cluster and 1 is a household contact for the Croydon family cluster.

However one man has caused concern, an 18-year-old infected with COVID-19 travelled from Berala to Orange, Nyngan and Broken Hill for a camping trip.

The government urges residents of these areas to get tested with even the mildest symptoms to stay on top of any contact infections.
