There were 57,878 tests conducted. This has been trending downwards this week. Over 1000 less tests than Saturday and significantly less than Friday's total of 77,119.

Vaccinations

Almost 95 per cent (94.2) of the NSW population over 16 have had one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 91 per cent of the eligible population have had two doses.

NSW Health have now turned their focus to booster shots for the vaccine.
