Note: No daily postcode statistics were released by NSW Health for Friday, 15 October, which is why a day has been skipped. We understand a large number of people appreciate the daily report, but as we pass 80 percent double vaccination, we will re-evaluate the need for publishing daily updates and will likely move to a weekly report.

10 people in NSW died from COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8.00pm Saturday, none were from the Northern Beaches. 526 people in NSW have died from COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.

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. As of 17 September 2021 NSW Health are applying the criteria of cases remaining active for 14 days from onset of symptoms. 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.

The vaccination rate is based on people who are ‘fully vaccinated’. Data is presented by NSW Health by postcode in percentile bands (e.g. 30-39%) only and not in whole numbers. As a result we will round down to the lower number in the band as the most accurate representation of meeting thresholds to lift restrictions. The postcode of people vaccinated is based on the address they reported at the time of the vaccination. Vaccinations carried out without a valid address are not shown. Individuals who have nominated a geographical address with a non-standard postcode, such as some post office box addresses, are excluded. This represents a very small proportion (<1%) of all persons in the data.
