Active cases are defined as people who have tested positive for COVID-19, are in isolation and are being clinically monitored by NSW Health. A person will no longer be an active case when they are clinically released from isolation. This figure only shows active cases that acquired their infection locally, it does not include cases that are acquired overseas, interstate or that are under initial investigation.

The testing rate is calculated by the number of ‘recent tests’ as defined by NSW Health (conducted in the last 14 days) compared with the ABS population data for the postcode. A testing rate of 100 percent does not necessarily mean every individual has been tested, but test numbers exceed the number of people resident within the postcode in the last 14 days. It is possible to exceed 100 percent if people are tested multiple times within the 14 day ‘recent tests’ window.

Despite some suburbs not having active cases in residence, caution is urged to also pay close attention to venue notifications to assess the risk of transmission.
