The list of potential exposure sites across Sydney continues to grow. Many suburbs and transport routes have been flagged as exposure sites because those infected have been there. The NSW health authorities say that anyone who attended these sites must get tested and isolate for 14 days.

A large gathering at Bronte Beach on Christmas Day could lead to widespread community transmission. Large numbers of people are being tested across Sydney. There were seven new cases in Sydney reported today, all linked to the Northern Beaches.

We’ve had 58 days now in Victoria without any community transmission. There are 10 cases in quarantine, 9 are in hotels and one teenager is in isolation at home.

The latest high profile person to contract COVID is golfer Greg Norman who is in hospital in the US.
