NSW recorded 452 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.
A woman in her 70s died from COVID-19 at Westmead Hospital.
Health authorities in NSW are no longer listing every metropolitan COVID-19 exposure site publicly.
NSW Health’s Jeremy McAnulty said while all COVID-19 exposure venues would continue to be listed in regional areas, that had not been the case in Sydney for several days.
He said the Delta COVID-19 variant was more likely to spread in households and offices than supermarkets and shopping centres.
“We’ve learned that people get lost in the detail when we put up venues that we don’t think are risky places on the website or in the media,” Dr McAnulty said.
“So we’re really trying to focus the public’s attention on those where we believe there’s a true risk.”
