Gladys Berejiklian has said restrictions will be eased for Sydney if cases remain low and more people come out to get tested.
New South Wales recorded zero local cases on Friday as clusters in western Sydney and the Northern Beaches appear to be contained.
But the premier said ‘our testing rates are not where we’d like them to be’ after only 16,070 swabs were recorded on Thursday.
‘Please come forward and get tested if you have the mildest of symptoms. That will allow us to have the confidence to bring easing of restrictions,’ she said.
Asked when restrictions will be eased the premier replied: ‘We are definitely in that space, but we just need a few more days and we also need those testing rates to go higher to give us the confidence that we can do that.
‘Because the last thing we want is to suddenly ease restrictions and go back to where we were a few weeks ago.’
