20 January 2021: NSW recorded zero new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, the third day in a row. Testing numbers have risen in recent days but are still insufficient to provide confidence that chains of transmission will be picked up. High testing rates help reveal cases that would otherwise go undetected and are an invaluable tool in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she would consider easing restrictions, but this decision will rely on testing rates increasing to at least 20,000 a day.
