New South Wales records six new cases of coronavirus as health bosses issue an urgent warning 

New South Wales has recorded six new coronavirus cases overnight.  

Five cases were returned travellers in hotel quarantine while one has been linked to the Liverpool Hospital cluster, in western Sydney.  

Twenty-one cases have now been linked to the hospital. 

New South Wales Health warned the low numbers were no excuse for people to become complacent with the virus.

'While the number of locally acquired cases recorded in the past 24 hours is low, the virus is likely circulating among people in the community with mild symptoms,' the department said.

'As such, the risk of outbreaks and a resurgence of cases remains.  

'It’s vital that everyone who does have the virus is tested and diagnosed, in order to stop further spread to others.'

Four people are currently being treated in the intensive care unit with two of them placed on ventilators.  

'NSW Health is again urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat – to come forward and get tested, so cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible,' the department warned. 

Five cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the state on Thursday.

One of the cases had attended the Eastern Suburbs Legion Club in Waverley in Sydney's eastern suburbs. 

Diners who attended a Thai restaurant in Casula in Sydney's south-west were also urged to get tested immediately. 

Consistently low COVID-19 cases over the past few weeks has encouraged the state government to make a number of rollbacks on restrictions. 

State premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced stadium capacity in the state would increase to 50 per cent.

Currently major venues are limited to 25 per cent capacity with a maximum of 10,000 guests.

Patrons will still have to adhere to the four square metre rule and will be required to wear a mask while moving to their seats. 

NSW will also move to relax restrictions around its border with Victoria. 

The NSW border region will now be expanded to Pleasant Hills, Lockhart, Benalla, Bright and Mount Beauty. 

Anyone in the areas with existing border region permits will be able to move freely.
