NSW has reported 825 new cases of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours.
Of those, at least 58 people were infectious while in the community.
There were also, sadly, three deaths.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says that the small handful of people doing the wrong thing is having "catastrophic consequences".
"I appeal to everybody, please consider the greater good. Only a handful of people are doing the wrong thing but it is having catastrophic consequences," she said.
"We really need to make sure that by the time we start opening up, the case numbers are as low as we can get them.
"Then that means we are not leaving the unvaccinated vulnerable and we want to ensure nobody who wants to get the vaccine doesn't cover vaccine before those days so please come forward and get vaccinated."
Victoria records 61 new cases, fears lockdown will drag into 2022
Health authorities in Victoria have confirmed 61 new Covid-19 infections, as fears grow that a lockdown will be implemented in regional areas.
Of those, 22 were in isolation for the duration of their infectious period and 48 are linked to known outbreaks.
In addition to the new cases, an additional 16 local cases were recorded on a rapid PCR testing platform and would be reported in tomorrow's numbers, Victoria's Department of Health announced.
The Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews has apologised to residents in regional Victoria for not giving them greater notice of the lockdown.
"I apologise for the inconvenience of that. There is simply not a choice but to follow the advice and act as we have today," he said.
"We know this is a big switch-up in regional Victoria. People need to follow the rules."
The rise in cases come as concerns grow that the state's lockdown could drag into 2022.
Former premier Jeff Kennett told the Saturday Herald Sun he had been contacted by food industry executives who told him they had been briefed by the Victorian Government because food supply would become a "big issue" in an extended lockdown.
Kennett also said regional areas including those "around Shepparton" would be forced into lockdown after he was provided a document that reportedly canvassed options for new restrictions during the state's Delta outbreak – including length of time out of the house, access to shopping, a halt on construction and a ban on takeaway coffee and food, though the latter is unlikely to come to fruition.
