NSW is set to endure another week of restrictions as the Bondi Covid-19 cluster grows.
The state recorded a further five cases of the virus in the 24 hours to 8pm on Monday night – two of them were announced on Sunday.
After 8pm, NSW Health was informed of a further seven new locally acquired cases which will be included in Wednesday’s numbers.
The increase in numbers have prompted NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian to extend current restrictions for another week.
The rules now include all of Greater Sydney, excluding NSW’s Central Coast and Hunter regions.
“It is only when you are eating or drinking indoors at a venue that you can’t or shouldn’t wear a mask,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“In every other circumstance, if you live or are in Sydney, you must wear a mask for another week beyond Wednesday, midnight.”
