Chief medical officer Kerry Chant said there has been 13 new cases of coronavirus in NSW. Of today’s cases, two are in hotel quarantine and a third is linked to a returned overseas traveller. They have been self-isolating.

Dr Chant said the other 10 cases are associated with the Crossroads Hotel and all live in southwestern Sydney.

“Of these, three attended the venue and seven are close contact of the cases,” Dr Chant said.

However, she confirmed an additional seven cases have been confirmed since 8pm last night – also linked to the Crossroads Hotel.

The news comes as group bookings at pubs will be reduced from 20 people to 10 and large venues will be capped at 300 patrons under new COVID-19 restrictions reintroduced across NSW, Premier Gladys Berejiklian confirmed today.

Venues will also be required to collect contact details of all patrons.
