NSW has recorded its 10th consecutive day of zero community transmission, as just one returned traveller in hotel quarantine tests positive.

NSW has celebrated its 10th day of zero community transmission.

One returned traveller in hotel quarantine is the state’s only case up to 8pm Sunday from just 4789 tests.

Dr Stephen Corbett from NSW Health said declining testing numbers are a concern.

“NSW Health is appealing to the community to come forward for testing right away if you have even the mildest of symptoms,” he said during Monday’s update.

“If people don’t come forward and get tested, we can’t keep the pandemic at bay.”

Three cases are in intensive care, none of which are being ventilated.

Despite Monday’s low figures, the health department is still urging residents to wear masks on public transport and in ride-sharing services or other places where people cannot physically distance.
