Two new COVID-19 cases identified in Sydney’s northern beaches

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is urging residents of Sydney’s northern beaches with “the mildest of symptoms” to get tested for COVID-19 after two new cases were identified overnight.

The new cases bring the total number of new cases announced in the last 24 hours to five – including two others on the northern beaches.

Ms Berejiklian said she received confirmation half an hour earlier that “in addition to those three cases which the public is already aware of there have been an additional two new cases on the northern beaches”.

She said the latest case she was made aware of was at Frenchs Forest.

Speaking in northern NSW alongside Prime Minister Scott Morrison to announce an upgrade to the Pacific Highway, Ms Berejiklian said the state had seen an increase in testing overnight.

"We want to get on top of this and don't want this concerning us in the last few days before Christmas and urging everyone to be as vigilant as ever."
