NSW Premier confirms no changes to restrictions

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has confirmed there will be no changes to coronavirus restrictions in New South Wales but stressed the need for continued "high alert" as two cases were registered in Albury.

"What we need to do is to make sure there hadn't been any seeding prior to the rate of transmission becoming apparent in Melbourne especially," the NSW Premier said.

"So far the signs are positive but we won't know for sure for a couple of weeks.

"What concerns me most is if there has been seeding with residents coming across the borders, people with the mildest symptoms come forward for testing."

The Premier confirmed the state recorded 13 new cases of COVID-19 but 11 were in hotel quarantine and the two Albury cases exhibited no evidence of community transmission.
