Masks now mandatory at indoor venues and public transport across Greater Sydney

Covid-19: Three new cases of virus in managed isolation, none in community

Covid-19: Three new cases of virus in managed isolation, none in community

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said mask wearing will also be extended an additional week from Thursday when it was set to end in previously selected councils. Another seven cases were recorded after deadline which will be included in Wednesday's tally.

NSW Health officials said there were five new cases recorded in the 24 hours until 8pm and two which had already been reported on Monday.

There are three new cases of Covid-19 in managed isolation, and none in the community, the Ministry of Health has announced.

Of the seven cases detected overnight, six are household contacts of previously identified cases and have been isolating.

All of the new cases except for two were already in isolation when tested and all of the cases except for one, a student at St Charles Catholic Primary School in Waverley, were linked to existing cases.

'People not even physically touching each other but literally fleetingly coming into the same airspace has seen the virus transferred from one person to another'.

The growing outbreak in Sydney's east is at a critical phase, health authorities say, as "scarily fleeting" transmission is driven by the highly-contagious Delta variant of the virus.

That post has since been deleted, though Atwin told CTV's "Question Period" on Sunday that "I certainly stand by what I'm saying". Green MP Jenica Atwin - who has since left the Green caucus to join the Liberals - ripped into Paul's statement on Twitter.

There are now no plans for a lockdown to be introduced, Ms Berejiklian said, because all but one case has been linked to known infections.

NSW Health said she was linked to the Bondi cluster but further investigations were under way.

A total of 28,645 tests were confirmed in the 24 hours to 8pm on Monday. All of Greater Sydney - not just the seven local government areas announced on Sunday - (excluding the Central Coast) will now be required to wear masks in public indoor venues, including while shopping, in theatres and when working in customer-facing hospitality and retail roles.

Passengers on three busy bus routes - visiting Baulkham Hills, Sydney, Northmead, Parramatta, Winston Hills, Haymarket and Newtown - were also listed as close or casual contacts.

The third is a woman in her 20s from Sydney's eastern suburbs.

New Zealand health authorities have also urged travellers from the state who have been to a location of interest to isolate and get tested.
