Authorities fear that a low level of community transmission has simmered in the region for months

The two locally acquired cases were household contacts of previously reported cases linked to the Oran Park community cluster, and have been isolated There are now 25 cases linked to this cluster in South West Sydney

NSW has landed three million virus tests since January Tuesday, but with the number of tests declining, NSW Health has again urged more people to show up for testing

« When we have a large number of people who continue to get tested, it allows us to detect cases earlier in the community and prevent further transmission, » said NSW Director of Health Kerry Singing

Remnants of COVID-19 in raw Bathurst sewage were also detected last week, and NSW Health is still calling anyone who attended the Bathurst 1000 auto race and local residents showing symptoms of COVID -19 to be tested

It comes as the Tasmanian government announced plans to reopen New South Wales on November 6 and New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian launched talks on the opening state in Victoria in the immediate future
