Two new cases of coronavirus have been diagnosed in NSW, but health authorities are pleased the state has recorded its fourth consecutive day of no community transmission.

Both cases are returned travellers in hotel quarantine.

It follows two straight days of zero cases altogether.

However, testing numbers remain low with less than 7000 (6381) tests conducted on Monday, similar to Sunday’s figure of 6353.

The health department is now urging the community to come forward, particularly as school holidays kick off and residents are moving around the community.

“NSW Health thanks the community for all they have done towards reducing COVID-19 numbers and continues to ask people to remain vigilant and come forward for testing immediately if symptoms like a runny nose, scratchy throat, cough or fever appear,” the department said in a statement.
