In a press conference on Monday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said about a third of new cases isolated for their entire infectious period but “a number of them” isolated for just part.
“Some unfortunately were active in the community. As Dr Kerry Chant has told us already, the cases we are seeing today are a reflection of what may have occurred in the previous week and obviously there is a lag time.”
“With this strain, we are seeing almost 100 percent of transmission within households,” she said.
“It is really important for everybody to follow the health rules, to look for those venues of concern, to make sure you get tested and isolates if you have been asked to do so.”
